Color Mixing in Acrylic

Ideal for beginning and intermediate artists seeking to develop and expand their color mixing skills, Color Mixing in Acrylic demonstrates a comprehensive range of techniques for working with color in this popular medium.

After an introduction to various mixing tools and mediums (essential for successfully working with this fast-drying paint), artists are ready to explore color theory, the color wheel, and all the basic color mixing concepts. Instruction is provided for mixing common colors in every major color group, including vibrant greens for landscapes, soft flesh tones for portraits, and everything in-between.

Primary, secondary, and tertiary colors are explained, along with factors such as hue, value, and color saturation. Thanks to the book's easy-to-follow format (including plenty of inspiration), artists can put their newfound skills to practical use right away.

With its breadth of detail and helpful instruction, Color Mixing in Acrylic is a must-have resource for every acrylic painter's library.
