Color Complements

I am working on understanding color.  Specifically Stephen Quiller's color wheel.  Last week in Monteagle, a friend brought a Stephen Quiller video for us all to watch.   He stressed that by mixing the exact complement of a color you will avoid mixing a muddy color.  I have only a few minutes today to play around.  This is my beginning of mixing true complements.  I am using some of the brands he suggested and some that I already had in my collection.  Colors vary by manufacturers but I think I have a good start.  The colors in the middle should produce a grey.  You can see some warm and some cool greys.  I remember doing this exercise in college but I didn't have quite the appreciation for it then as I do now.
