The Practical Handbook of Color for Artists

Containing hundreds of photos and illustrations, The Practical Handbook of Color for Artists teaches every aspect of color — both theory and practice.

Opening chapters explain the color wheel, present color charts, and demonstrate how to use color in various media including oils, watercolors, acrylics, and pastels. The chapters that follow emphasize practice through a number of illustrated step-by-step exercises.

Here are just a few of the lessons covered in the book:

  • Exploring color through monochrome painting, chromatic scales, and much more
  • Expressing emotion through color
  • Mixing colors on the palette, on the painting, and more
  • Building an image with color, whether painting nudes, florals, landscapes, seascapes, or night scenes
  • Being creative with color
