Shirley Trevena is well known for her vibrant use of colour. In this superbly illustrated book in Collins Artist’s Studio series she focuses on using colour in particularly creative and innovative ways, offering the intermediate painter new insights into this essential aspect of painting.
Colour is one of the most important subjects for the painter and all artists find it fascinating, but also at times challenging. Shirley Trevena’s masterful use of colour is widely recognized and in this book she explores all aspects of using colour in innovative and occasionally unorthodox ways, resulting in watercolours that are a riot of dynamic colour.
Colour theory is looked at through a series of simple exercises that illustrate how the principles work in practice, and there are sections on using just single colours and neutrals, and how to mix colours in unusual ways. The role of colour to evoke mood and atmosphere is also covered, and throughout the book Shirley’s stunning watercolours provide valuable inspiration for artists looking to develop their own style.
Practical exercises, projects, step-by-step demonstrations and studio tips are included, as well as work by 15 other professional artists to provide a broader view.
