A small practical handbook on choosing and mixing colours successfully. It shows how to create the maximum colour range from the minimum number of paints. The authors address watercolours, acrylics and oils, showing how to mix, blend and dilute in order to achieve a range of effects.
A new, up-to-date edition of the popular and comprehensive encyclopedia by professional and award-winning artist, Jeremy Galton. Ideal for artists of all skill levels, this A-Z reference covers a multitude of topics concerning oil painting. The book is divided into two sections: the first provides step-by-step demonstrations that guide artists through a variety of techniques, from basic colour mixing through to creating special effects such as peinture a l'essence and sgraffito. The second part focuses on themes, illustrating how individual artists tackle a number of common subjects, including landscapes, buildings, portraits, still life, skies and water. This resource provides a wealth of stimulating ideas to help artists - both amateurs and veterans - develop their own oil-painting style.
