Beginners to Advanced Painters Can Learn What All Great Artists Know
by Dan Bartges
I was most impressed by this little book. It starts off talking about brushes, paints palettes, etc. then continues with a discussion on color schemes, but it's not just a lot of words. There are pictures galore.
When he discusses color schemes there are pictures of the color wheel as you would expect, but there are pictures by great artists so the reader can learn to distinguish different color schemes. There's a chapter on How to Plan Your Next Painting's Color Scheme. I thought this would be helpful in planning a color scheme for a room since the rules are applicable to things other than painting.
I received this book as a review copy. If you are a painter, beginning or more advanced, I'm sure you would learn some helpful technique and tips from this little gem.
