This book is a practical and inspirational manual that shows you a huge range of colour mixes in watercolour. The aim of the book is to encourage you to get to know colours well and be motivated to explore and experiment with colour. Use the book as a handy reference when you want to know how to mix a specific colour, or as a catalogue of inspiration when seeking ideas to try in your work. The handy colour viewing card included can be used to view each colour swatch in isolation. This will help sharpen your perception of the colour or allow you to pinpoint a specific shade to use in your own work.
