Push Color Beyond the Ordinary

Let go of what you see, and paint what you feel! Brilliant Color reveals a new way of thinking about color, empowering you to push the envelope beyond ordinary realism into bold landscapes full of life and energy.

The transformation begins by learning to see color as value. Starting with short demos featuring diagrams, color wheels and side-by-side visual comparisons, award-winning artist Julie Gilbert Pollard shows you how to liberate your use of color to capture the lively essence of every landscape. It's not about complex color theory or painstaking attempts to paint exactly what you see. Rather, it's about pushing color to warmer or cooler extremes for stronger contrasts.

Julie's signature style blends acrylic underpainting with water-mixable oils to produce striking luminosity in less time and fewer layers than traditional oil painting techniques. Ten complete step-by-step demonstrations show you how to paint gorgeous landscapes with an inspiring range of settings and seasons.

Each in-depth demonstration features foolproof color mixing charts, reference photos, initial sketches, and numbered steps with detailed captions. Simply follow along and give it a try. In no time, you'll have what it takes to make your colors zing and your paintings glow.
