Every artist—from beginner to expert—uses color to create. Whether a painting contains succulent grapes in a deep violet or crumbling castle ruins in stormy payne's gray, it's the colors that make the scenes eye-catching and vibrant. But sometimes a single color can't capture the beauty of an image or object. Now, with Color Wheels for the Artist, you can preview the shades and hues that will result from mixing two colors—and determine if they're right for your vision.
What happens when you mix violet and cadmium lemon? Or hooker's green and burnt sienna? How dark is the hue that results from the combination of permanent rose and Prussian blue? Or orange and cadmium red? Simply spin the color wheel and find out! With eight step-by-step projects, as well as instructions on color mixing and applying color and lists of materials needed, Color Wheels for the Artist offers ample opportunities for artists to experiment and experience the full spectrum of color. You'll also develop key skills and build the confidence every artist needs to succeed.
From the first brushstroke on paper to the final product, Color Wheels for the Artist helps you harness the power of color—and become the best artist you can
