Collins artist's colour manual

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This stunning new book is a definitive guide to the fascinating world of colour, essential to all creative visual pursuits. Practical, informative and inspiring, this is the artist's 'bible' on colour. Aimed at painters in particular and creative people in general, Collins Artist's Colour Manual will appeal to designers, art students and educators and all those with a creative interest in the visual world.

The topics include colour identification, colour mixing, a comprehensive buyer's guide and fascinating interviews on the practical application of colour theory with practising artists. But most of all this book is about the creative use and joy of colour - this essential, yet often elusive element of the artist's visual repertoire.

Treated in a lively, visual and creative way, this book brings the subject of colour alive and shows how greater colour awareness can bring life, meaning and confidence to your painting and creative pursuits.

Contents Introduction 1. WHAT IS COLOUR? - Understanding the perception and language of colour. - Information on paints, pigments, colour mixing and a concise buyer's guide to materials. 2. COLOUR BY COLOUR - A tour of the paintbox, colour by colour. - Information on how each colour handles and how they mix and work in different media. 3. CREATIVE DIRECTIONS - An inspiring look at a wide range of colour usage from practising artists. 4. INDEX OF COLOUR Glossary of terms International directory of suppliers
