Color Mixing Recipes for Watercolor: Mixing Recipes for More Than 450 Color Combinations by William F Powell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This handy painter's guide features an easy-to-follow mixing method for creating just the right shade of watercolour for any subject. Each colour sample is accompanied by a "recipe" that gives the paint percentages and dilution level needed to achieve the colour. This book makes it easy to search for a colour based on a subject; artists can look up "red rose" in the Colour Guidance Index and quickly locate the corresponding colour sample and recipe. This essential reference book also features information on altering values, graying with compliments, and creating portrait colours. In addition, the book supplies a colour-mixing grid - a heavy, printed acetate surface where artists can mix paints according to the proportions indicated in the recipes.
