She has been a freelance writer for The Artist magazine since 1999.

Review:

Colour mixing guides take the mystery and chemistry out of the process to provide you with easy mixes giving you the colours you want. Colour theory is included. It uses widely available colours. When you need spot-on, repeatable colours, you'll find this book essential. It's easy to use with very clear instructions * Karen Platt- yarnsandfabrics.co.uk * January 2016 Julie Collins' handy pocket sized guide to mixing acrylic colours contains 48 pages packed full of advice on mixing acrylic colours for all possible uses. There's information on colour theory, complementary colours, warm and cool colours, colour tone, using a limited palette, dull and bright colours and using local colour. Julie uses readily available Winsor & Newton colours and presents the information in a clear practical way. A colour wheel and template are included so that readers can paint their own colour wheel. * The Leisure Painter * December 2016 Julie Collins' previous book on colour mixing with watercolours was reviewed in our December 2015 issue. The latest book on Acrylics is a good addition to the series. It follows the same structure as the Watercolours book, using a limited palette (this time thirteen colours plus white) from primary and secondary colours but as a different medium, producing different colours and results. The book explores the colour wheel, tone and dulling colours before moving onto the colour mixing catalogue. This book is a handy reference tool for planning a colour scheme and would be useful for creating a many layered piece for mixed media work. Julie Collins makes the point at the beginning that you need to spend time mixing your colours in order to make the right choices for a piece of work. She likens it to an athlete warming up before a race rather than rushing into a 100m sprint. It's a great metaphor to consider when approaching colour. * Workshop on the Web *
