Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Colors of Nature is the perfect companion for anyone who is puzzled by the seemingly unpredictable behavior of the paints on their palette, as well as those who would like their watercolor paintings to look fresher and livelier. The author has tested more than 150 artists watercolor paints from six manufacturers, and the results of this exhaustive testing are not only included here but also analyzed, with the best colors recommended in a palette section. Throughout this beautifully illustrated book, Sandrine Maugy guides the reader through a world of colors and exquisite flowers and fruit, explaining simple concepts and more advanced color-mixing theory while exploring the serendipity and beauty of wet-in-wet watercolor painting. Her "harmonic shadows" theory creates a link between tone and color, making both work in harmony for better form and purer colors.

About the Author

Sandrine Maugy is well-known in botanical, artistic, and horticultural circles for her articles in Artists & Illustrators Magazine, of which she has written more than 40 to date.
