Description:
Color is the second volume in Barron's new art instruction series that focuses on creation of finished, professional-looking paintings. Books in this series are intended for use by advanced art students and experienced amateurs.

Understanding and mastering colour is an indispensable skill for creating paintings in oil, watercolour, tempera, gouache, and other colour media, and this book analyses all aspects and uses of colour in art. The authors explain the colour circle, then apply colour theory to demonstrate effective use of complementary and contrasting colours. Drawing extensively on works by major painters, they show how artists use colour to express moods and emotions, as well as how to create surreal effects by heightening contrasts, or by giving objects colours unlike those in nature. They discuss techniques for applying colour in various wet and dry media and show how colour plays an important role in an abstract painting.

Their examples include paintings by such artists as Degas, Van Gogh, Picasso, Delaunay, Ernst, Rothko, and many others. Full-color illustrations on every page.
