Description

Bestselling artist and writer Hazel Soan presents a concise and approachable guide to colour in painting. Whether you are using watercolour, oils or acrylic, Learn Colour In Painting Quickly demonstrates how to make the most of colour in your painting. The book is filled with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step exercises, and written in an accessible way for all artists to learn about colour. The book begins with the Basics of Colour: what it is, how pigments are made and our emotional responses to colour, it then moves on to The Colours in the Palette: properties of different colours, transparent and opaque colours and granulating and sedimentary colours. Next comes Warm and Cool Colours: how colours are classified and how to use temperature bias. The Interaction of Colours looks at which colours work best together and how to use a colour wheel. In The Mixing of Colours, Hazel explains the differences between mixing on palette and paper and how to blend by eye, as well as primary and secondary colours and layering. The Effect of Light and Shade on Colour looks at how depth and form are created by tone. Finally, Hazel looks at suggested colour palettes and winning colour combinations. Illustrated with Hazel's magnificent, colourful paintings, and with exercises and expert guidance throughout, this book is the perfect way to master colour in your painting.
