Colours of Nature PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Colours of Nature free pdf Colours of Nature is the perfect companion for anyone who is puzzled by the seemingly unpredictable behaviour of the paints on their palette, as well as those who would like their watercolour paintings to look fresher and livelier. The author has tested more than 150 artists' watercolour paints from six manufacturers, and the results of this exhaustive testing are not only included here but also analysed, with the best colours recommended in a palette section. Throughout this beautifully illustrated book, Sandrine Maugy guides the reader through a world of colours and exquisite flowers and fruit, explaining simple concepts and more advanced colour-mixing theory while exploring the serendipity and beauty of wet-in-wet watercolour painting. Her 'Harmonic Shadows' theory creates a link between tone and colour, making both work in harmony for better form and purer colours.
