Oh cheers Patrick1 Thankyou for that tip makes sense now why the yellow I put over the black looks like sewage floating over a black lagoon lol
"simultaneous color contrast and can have a huge (and often surprising) affect on how we perceive color in the context of an artwork or scene." excellentthankyou that is very illuminating Partick1
The main thing was trying to make say for example a white( made from titanium and linseed stand oil) will have a yellow undertone all be it slight ..so to try to play down the yellow was thinking to have (in the mixed greys) a girege or yellow grey so in theory it would pull out the complimentary ie blue in the white. But as you rightly say and i descover this morning looking at my nearly dried paint the yellow and black ( thin layer 99% yellow/1% blue mixe over black layer ) etc is looking green... even with a nano(smallest) amount of blue possible in the mix so as to avoid just getting dark yellow) which would then now pull the red out of the white ie it would be warm and not cool or pulling on the blue as I had intended. Oh boy it's never ending ! Just keep experimenting I guess and thankyou so much for your help it is fantastic
I start to read joseph Albers interaction of color hopefully that will help
