Painter's Guide to Color


by Stephen Quiller

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.

Stephen Quiller, author of the best-sellers Color Choices and Acrylic Painting Techniques, lives in Creede, Colorado.
