An updated, bound-in but conveniently removable color wheel comes with this all-inclusive reference offering the latest word on the latest paint formulations available to serve artists working in any paint medium. Opening with an analysis of the painter's ideal palette and how it is organized with primary, secondary, and intermediate hues, the guide then explores value and intensity, complementary and analogous colors, the ways in which color can be used to evoke moods, express atmospheric conditions, and other essentials relating to color choice and usage. A range of master colorists' work is also included.
"The 144-page book focuses on the intricacies of value and intensity, color relationships, color for mood, and using the color palette while painting on location. The book features a gatefold 'Quiller Color Wheel' that is a most useful painting tool."-Center Post Dispatch, April 5, 2000
"Watercolorist Stephen Quiller has devoted decades to exploring color relationships, color mixing and expression. His observations not only help artists paint stronger works, but assist collectors in viewing color as a part of the artwork."-Wild Life Art, June 1998
