Description

Explore the basics of color theory and color mixing, and then apply your new skills to create your own beautiful floral watercolor paintings, step by colorful step.

Color theory and color mixing are essential topics for all artists to know, and Contemporary Color Theory: Watercolor Flowers covers both in an easy-to-follow way with simple, actionable steps that any artist can do. Learn how to:
  • Mix paint colors
  • Avoid “dirty” mixes (those that look too brown, for example)
  • Create your own color wheel
  • Create neutral colors and pastels
  • Mix vintage colors
  • And much more
This book is ideal for all skill levels and ages, and while it focuses on watercolor, the same tips and techniques can be applied to other media as well, including acrylic, oil, and gouache.

Once you’re familiar with color theory and feel comfortable creating your own color mixes, dive into the step-by-step painting projects. Each project is done in the style seen on the author’s popular Instagram account (@thewhimsicalcreative) and features beautiful, romantic florals painted in watercolor. Learn how to paint floral wreaths, bouquets, and different types of leaves and plants.

Contemporary Color Theory: Watercolor Flowerscombines the essential topics of color theory and color mixing with watercolor painting projects for a comprehensive book that’s perfect for beginning and aspiring artists.

Thank you to Netgalley and to the publisher for giving me this eARC to review.

I really liked this book as it had a lot of easy steps for watercolour flowers, showed clear photographs and went into colour theory which is always great to learn. I would say get the physical book rather than the digital just for ease of access due to photographs and steps.
