Another great book to get for your library.
Look for such chapters: charting pigments, limited palettes, triads, subsurface scatterings,gamut maps and shapes of color schemes. James Gurney has done a fabulous job and articulating the information a "realist painter" needs to know. Warning: It will take you a long time to absorb all that Mr. Gurney has written. Enjoy each page!
