From Todd M. Casey, renowned artist and teacher, comes The Oil Painter's Color Handbook, which will help the oil painter understand color and allow him to paint with greater confidence. As Casey notes, every artist—and artist in training—must learn to "master the major concepts of picture-making: drawing, light, shadow, value, form, composition, and color."
The Oil Painter's Color Handbook begins with an in-depth look at the use of color throughout art history. Casey then breaks down the process of understanding color into easily digestible lessons—each one explained and richly illustrated with both historical and contemporary paintings.
Through clear instruction, step-by-step demonstrations, and exercises, readers will learn to apply these techniques and concepts to their own painting.
Once educated with this basic knowledge, as an artist, one can begin to find the balance between science and emotional intuition in creating art.
This informative and visually dynamic book will be accessible to, and appealing to, artists, art students and art instructors, serious amateurs and hobbyists.
