Book Description

Feb. 1 2002
Internationally renowned artist and best selling author Stephen Quiller shows readers how to discover their own personal "color sense" in Color Choices, a book that offers readers a fresh perspective on perfecting their own color styles.

With the help of his own "Quiller Wheel," a special foldout wheel featuring 68 precisely placed colors, the author shows artists how they can develop their own unique color blends. First, Quiller demonstrates how to use the wheel to interpret color relationships and mix colors more clearly. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent guide to color Dec 25 1999
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not useful for acrylic artist April 27 2013
By jan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
