Riassunto: Achieving the perfect colour is what every artist strives for and this guide shows how to do it. It is a practical reference for artists, from absolute beginners to the more accomplished. Colour is discussed in the context of the whole range of media - traditional oil paints, water mixable oils and alkyd colours; watercolours, gouache, inks; soft pastel, oil pastel and paintsticks; and acrylics and egg tempera. The book breaks down into three sections: the first looks at how we see colour and tone and how we have to adapt to what we see in order to paint it. The second section shows a basic palette for each type of paint that would be a sufficient starting point for any artist. The uses, types and characteristics of each medium are explained. The third part of the book looks in depth at 36 popular colours in the artist's palette. For every colour there is a mixing chart (showing the colours that can be achieved when it is mixed with 8 other major colours), with detailed notes, a short account of its origins, a look at its properties and a painting showing key mixes of that colour in use.
L'autore: Tony Paul trained at Bournemouth Art College. He started showing his work in local exhibitions then exhibited in national galleries, including the Royal Academy. He divides his time between teaching, writing and, of course, painting. He is competent in all mediums, but feels that his best work is in egg tempera. His paintings are held in many private collections, including the Duchy of Cornwall. Tony lives in Bournemouth.
