Format: Hardcover
quiller's guide is the most systematic color text available. it combines a deep knowledge of traditional color theories with a huge amount of quiller's personal research into how paints actually mix as colors. central to the book is quiller's color mixing wheel for watercolors, oils and acrylics, probably the most accurate color wheel available in any published work (though he has a revised color wheel, available separately). he explores the monochrome, analogous, complementary and split complementary color schemes through many demonstration paintings and detailed mixing instructions. he emphasizes repeatedly the importance of a strong value composition, and careful variations in color saturation, in building the painting. an indispensible book.

Stephen brings together in details the basics on color, and provides guidelines to mix colors successfully. Informative and inspiring. I particularly love his circle of colors, using actual colors found in watercolor painting.

Love this book. Lots of great pictures to demonstrate his colour theories. Already integrating his techniques in my work. Well worth the money.

This book would be useful for watercolour artists probably but I found it very frustrating trying to translate the colour names of many of the paints to correspond with the modern acrylic extra body acrylic paints I use. Colour numbers would have helped a great deal. The colour wheel is useful and the theory.
