"Because watercolor is unique in so many ways - transparency, rapid drying time, behavior in mixtures, and tendencey to produce fascinating 'accidents,' color is always a special challenge to the watercolorist.

Now, the noted western watercolorist Tom Hill has revised his highly successful book Color for the Watercolor Painter. The new material is of the same high quality as that in the first edition.

He describes how to achieve textural effects, how to mix colors, how to choose color palettes (warm, cool, low-key, high-key, tonal, minimum) for various purposes and how to create the effects of distance and atmosphere through color. And in a series of full-color step-by-step demonstration projects, he illustrates how to use color effectively in landscapes, seascapes, floral paintings, portraits, and figure paintings. In addition, the revised edition contains 32 completely new full-color pages in which Hill discusses color intensity versus color value, how to mix different complements, opacity versus transparency, and relationships of warm and cool, warm and warm, and cool and cool. He also describes mixing with a minimum number of colors, mixing color while painting, graying colors, intensifying colors, staining and tinting, painting with just two colors, hard back
