The color concepts in Caroline Jasper's book, Painter's Guide and Color Manual: Strategies for All Media, really do apply to all media. Artists all deal with the same pigments, and often question the relevance of color theory in learning to manage paint colors. All suffer through palettes wrought with muddy color in struggling to bridge the gap between wheel and real color.
Caroline Jasper spins off the color wheel offering insightful understanding of diverse facets inherent in all colors. She guides readers to think about color logically in order to choose and use paints purposefully. She explains her dual hue palette, along with essential advanced Color Tips. Clearly presented value, intensity, and temperature strategies spell out how to use color to create visual impact and enhance depth illusion.
An important feature is Jasper's concise course in painting on her trademark red ground. Materials and prep steps lead to painting demonstrations. Her approaches to landscape and water apply to many subjects.
As a bonus, uncut versions of Caroline's articles "I See Red" for American Artist Magazine,"Thirst for Painting Color" for Creative Catalyst's web site, and a demonstration segment from her book, Powercolor - Master Color Concepts for All Media are also included.
62 pages, softback art instruction book.
"I really love this book. I am finally at a point in my painting experience where much of the information you share in the book makes sense to me. I am really excited about the new possibilities you have opened up for me as an artist. Thank you so much." - Denise Broussard
