From the Back Cover:

Chromacolour is a revolutionary new paint that can be used in a variety of ways – like watercolour, gouache, acrylics, oils, or even as an ink. This book offers a practical guide to using this versatile medium – and may well provide a turning point in your painting life!

This is the first book on a revolutionary new painting medium – a medium so versatile that it may well take the place of most of the conventional media currently in use.

Imagine a paint that can be mixed with water and used like transparent watercolour; or applied in opaque layers like gouache; or used straight from the tube to produce impasto effects like those achieved with acrylics; or applied thickly with a painting knife like oil paint. Chromacolour can be used in all of these ways – and more – making it the only painting medium you will ever need.

'Chromacolour: A Revolution in Art' provides practical advice on all aspects of using this exciting new paint and illustrates, through the work of Don Harrison and several other professional artists, the varied affects that can be achieved with it. Chromacolour is easy to use, making it suitable for beginners as well as more experienced artists, and its versatility encourages a fresh and creative approach to painting. Whether you are new to Chromacolour or, having already discovered it, wish to develop your existing skills, this is the book you have been waiting for.

Don Harrison had a long and varied career in the commercial world of art and graphics before turning his attention more recently to professional video-making. At about the same time, having worked in various painting media over the years, he also rediscovered his passion for painting in watercolour. He has combined these two interests in the production of his own series of very successful instructional painting videos, including one on Chromacolour entitled ' Revolution in Art ' , which complements this book.

Don Harrison regularly holds workshops, art classes and seminars, and with his down-to-earth approach and popular presentations he has become a big favourite with leisure painters at exhibitions and art society demonstrations. This is his first book.
