Colour is both an art and a science, so this simple handbook looks at how colour is available today in different media, with information on basic pigments and advice on how to modify off-the-shelf paints. Glazes and washes can amplify space, soften 'plastic' paints, and add bloom and depth simply and fast. And as textures and light also alter our perception of colour, use the comparative examples in this book to see the variations you can expect.
Whether you draw your inspiration from nature, a painting or your own imagination, this book will give you control over and confidence with colour, and lead you into the adventurous world beyond the realms of neutral's and all-white. Make colour your friend and ally, and through it make your home your own.
