Handprint Color Theory

I just have to post about Handprint, a fascinating site about color theory.

This site, written over several years by Bruce MacEvoy, is a detailed description of his personal exploration of color along with his analysis (and debunking!) of the main traditional color theories. Each theory is described in detail and tested methodically. It's meant for watercolor but many of the philosophies seem applicable to oil paint.
