Subject title: Helpful tutorials on colour & light

Like the title says, I´m looking for tutorials on colour and/or light that are well explained. I already read this: http://purplekecleon.deviantart.com/art/How-I-See-Color-A-Tutorial-184642625 one that I liked very much and now I´m motivated to learn more. If there is already a topic for this, it would be nice if someone could link it. Thank you (:

This post is really old, but if somebody is still on the search for a good book on the subject: I recently found the book "Colour and Light" by James Gurney and think it is super awesome, you should look it up :-)

Here's some youtube tutorials that I've found especially helpful.
Marco Bucci on color harmony
Aldoori doing some pretty impressive stuff with underpaintings
Sinix's breakdown The part on how the most saturated colors are distributed across the value spectrum starts at 4:00
a demo of Sinix painting skintones

They all presume that you have a solid understanding of how lighting simple forms works, and are more concerned with harmonizing what happens 'on top' of those fundamental problem solving stages of painting though. For basic breakdowns maybe this this or this would be more useful.
