This invaluable, at-a-glance Winsor & Newton Guide takes the uncertainty out of mixing acrylic colours, and offers a concise visual reference to creating more than 2,000 hues and shades. With a base palette of 25 popular Artists' Acrylic Colours, artists are shown how to re-create what they see on their palette and on their work of art.
The book shows how to match precisely any shade you want to reproduce in your work with only two colours in your mix. This means you obtain the cleanest and brightest tints possible. It is intended for both amateur and professional artists and will prove invaluable in the studio and when painting on location.
