Simple secrets for colors that sing

Don't settle for colors that just sit there. Inspired by the work of the great Impressionists, Color Harmonies shows you how to use analogous colors (colors next to each other on the color wheel) and their complements to achieve lively, glowing effects. By keeping palette-mixing to a minimum, placing pure color notes side by side, and applying other simple but powerful color tricks, you'll create sparkling passages of color that attract your viewer's eye, engage the imagination, and make your paintings shine.

  • 5 demonstrations illustrate the step-by-step creation of stunning light-filled paintings.
  • Includes expert instruction on drawing and composition, techniques for adding texture and interest, making the most of light and shadow, and more.
  • Richly illustrated with gorgeous landscape, flower and figure paintings.
Brimming with 30 years' worth of instruction by a veteran workshop teacher, Color Harmonies offers a strong foundation for artists just starting out in watercolor, as well as groundbreaking advice for advanced artists in search of more effective and personal approaches to color and light.
