Then he explains, step by step, how to develop five structured color schemes, apply underlays and overlays, and use color in striking, unusual ways. This book will bring out every artist's unique sense of color whether he or she works in oil, watercolor, acrylics, gouache, or casein.

Stephen Quiller's approach to color theory in this book is so clearly and comprehensively stated that I always recommend it to my students. Quiller gives you all the tools you need to understand the many aspects of color and how to apply that information to your paintings. His lessons are beautifully illustrated by his own marvelous work. I couldn't be without this book, and neither should you!
