Colours of Nature - Botanical Painting
|INSIDE:||200 original paintings|
Colours of Nature is the perfect companion for anyone who is puzzled by the seemingly unpredictable behaviour of the paints on their palette, as well as those who would like their watercolour paintings to look fresher and livelier. In this new paperback edition, the author has tested more than 150 artists' watercolour paints from six manufacturers, and the results of this exhaustive testing are included here, along with recommendations for the best colours in the palette sections at the end of each chapter. This beautifully illustrated book guides the reader through a world of colours and exquisite flowers and fruit, explaining simple concepts and more advanced colour-mixing theory while exploring the serendipity and beauty of wet-in-wet watercolour painting.
