About this title


This text illustrates the principles of using colour with numerous paintings and exercises designed to demonstrate how to use colour to plan stronger designs, develop better compositions, and convey moods and emotions.

From Library Journal:

This is a highly competent study of color, especially for the beginner. Leland explores the history, science, and theory of artistic uses of color before diving into comprehensive exercises and projects. One learns to control color in glazing, shadowing, and toned supports and sees the effects of six different palettes on the same painting. This volume is recommended for all artists in their early studies and can be followed by Zoltan Szaho's Color-by-Color Guide to Watercolor (North Light, 1998) for more advanced studies.
