An updated, bound-in but conveniently removable colour-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 colours, the ways in which colour can be used to evoke moods, express atmospheric conditions, and other essentials relating to colour choice and usage. A range of master colourists' work is also included.
