The Watercolour Artist’s Guide to Exceptional Colour
There are hundreds of watercolour paints on the market, with widely varying characteristics, appearances and names. This easy-to-use book cuts through the confusion and allows you to identify those that are best suited to your style of work and build a balanced palette of exceptional colours.
Understand the composition and qualities of different formulations – from single-pigment paints to special hue mixtures, from grainy sedimentary pigments to lighter-bodied and transparent watercolours.
Discover the pros and cons of organic and inorganic pigments; find out about the very latest synthetic pigments and iridescent colours; learn how to conduct your own lightfastness experiments.
You’ll also find information on choosing and using a wide range of creative palettes, each with an explanation of the colours and their qualities, advice on mixing, and a step-by-step painting demonstration.
