Discover the key concepts of colour theory for beginning artists.

The Artist's Toolbox series provides easy-to-use reference guides for beginning and aspiring artists. While many instructional art books gloss over important concepts, focusing instead on how to replicate a piece of art, the Artist's Toolbox series breaks down the whats, whens, whys, and hows of each relevant tool or technique, clearly demonstrating its purpose and how to employ it to achieve the desired effects.

In Artist's Toolbox: Colour, painters will learn how to create impactful work with an understanding of basic colour theory. Topics include the colour wheel, hue, saturation, value, temperature, relativity, colour relationships, and colour mixing. Artists will learn how colour captures mood and helps communicate meaning as well as how to use colour to create personal, expressive works of art. Step-by-step projects and accessible technique demonstrations show colour theory in action, making this book a useful reference for any beginning artist's library.
