How to See Color and Paint It
"The fundamental lesson of the book is that if you put the right color in the spot in the right place, you create a realistic image of form, space, surface texture, atmosphere, light and shade. As you follow the painting projects in this book, you'll make the dramatic discovery that everything in nature is filled with luminous color. You'll learn to see glowing color in the "blackest" shadow and the "whitest" linen. You'll learn when a green can appear red; how to paint metal, glass, wood, paper, porcelain, and other opaque, transparent, or textured surfaces. You'll learn how to paint quickly enough to capture a "live" still live - a flower that moves and slowly dies as you paint it. And you'll practice with a setup outdoors, to see how sunlight and skylight affect color."--BOOK JACKET.
