In Mastering Color Mixing with Watercolors, Isabelle Roelofs and Fabien Petillion walk you step by step through the basics of watercolor pigments, paper, and color-mixing techniques. Using just 11 colors, you'll learn to bring more variety to primary colors, create basic colors (such as Payne's Gray and Van Dyke Brown), and create your own secondary colors. This approach works no matter what brand of paints you use, as each of the 11 colors is identified by its universal pigment color (such as PY154).

Isabelle Roelofs, Fabien Petillion 9781681987... Overview

In Mastering Color Mixing with Watercolors, Isabelle Roelofs and Fabien Petillion walk you step by step through the basics of watercolor pigments, paper, and color-mixing techniques. Using just 11 colors, you'll learn to bring more variety to primary colors, create basic colors (such as Payne's Gray and Van Dyke Brown), and create your own secondary colors. This approach works no matter what brand of paints you use, as each of the 11 colors is identified by its universal pigment color (such as PY154).

What if you could create any color you wanted, from a basic palette of just 11 colors? That is what the art of color mixing is all about. And once you master it, you will be able to create a broad range of all the colors you might need. Your options are limited only by your imagination.

Once you start color mixing, you'll see how four artists interpret that basic palette to create thematic color palettes tailored to different subject matter, such as flowers, landscapes, portraits, and animals. Finally, you'll solidify your understanding of color mixing by analyzing five watercolor paintings to see how the color was achieved and how the painting was developed, layer by layer, to achieve the final result.
