Controlling the palette and the effects produced. Many examples. Also a color wheel for paint choices - good for both acrylic and watercolor.
Many exciting possibilities. Triads etc.
Also very good and comprehensive is : "Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter" by James Gurney.
Not an instructional book but many examples of color control and lighting are in "The Fantasy Art Techniques Of Tim Hildebrandt",

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823006972, Paperback)

Internationally renowned artist and best selling author Stephen Quiller shows readers how to discover their own personal "color sense" in Color Choices, a book that offers readers a fresh perspective on perfecting their own color styles.

With the help of his own "Quiller Wheel," a special foldout wheel featuring 68 precisely placed colors, the author shows artists how they can develop their own unique color blends. First, Quiller demonstrates how to use the wheel to interpret color relationships and mix colors more clearly. Then he explains, step by step, how to develop five structured color schemes, apply underlays and overlays, and use color in striking, unusual ways. This book will bring out every artist's unique sense of color whether he or she works in oil, watercolor, acrylics, gouache, or casein.
