Colour Mixing Guide: Oils, Paperback Book


A clear, comprehensive guide to colour mixing for the artist using oil paints.

It begins with simple colour theory and a colour wheel, with a template provided so that readers can paint their own; a vital step towards understanding colour.

There is vividly illustrated guidance on complementary, warm and cool colours, colour tone, using a limited palette, dull and bright colours and factoring in local colour.

There follows an array of essential colour mixes using widely available Winsor & Newton colours.

A beautifully presented and practical guide to understanding and mixing colours.
