Mastering Color Mixing With Watercolors
What if you could create any colour you wanted, from a basic palette of just 11 colours? That is what the art of colour mixing is all about. And once you master it, you will be able to create a broad range of all the colours you might need. Your options will be limited only by your imagination. In this colour mixing book, Isabelle Roelofs and Fabien Petillion first walk you step by step through the basics of watercolour pigments, paper, and colour mixing techniques. Using just 11 colours, you ll learn to bring more variety to your primary colours, create basic colours (such as Payne s Gray and Van Dyck Brown), and create your own secondary colours. This approach works no matter what brand of paints you use, as each of the 11 colours is identified by its universal pigment colour (such as PY154). Once you re underway colour mixing, you ll see how four artists interpret that basic palette to create thematic colour palettes tailored to different subject matter, such as flowers, landscapes, portraits, and animals. Finally, you ll solidify your understanding of colour mixing by analysing five watercolour paintings to see how the colour was achieved and how the painting was developed, layer by layer, to achieve the final result.
