Use a Color Wheel
Get yourself one of the nifty little color wheels that Jack Richeson & Company sells, if you are unsure about using color. They are very small and will fit in any paint box for quick referencing.
The one I like is their Pocket sized Color Wheel/Mixing Guide. On the back, it has illustrations of color relationships, Complements, Split Compliments,Triads,Tetrads,Monochromatic,analogous,achromatic,color and light,color and distance explanations. The front has color definitions and a 10 gray scale.
We can all mix color, but are you actually thinking about it while you go through the process? Color is very complicated and can get you in a lot of trouble before you know it.
