Publisher Comments:

Everything was alive, pulsing with light and color.—Susan Sarback

This is more than a how-to-paint book. It's a how-to-see book ? specifically, how to tune in to nature's glorious subtleties of light and color.

Forget complex theories. Full-Color Seeing is based on direct observation. It's about overcoming preconceptions and perceiving true color based on the colors that surround it, the way light hits it, time of day, season, weather conditions, and too many other factors for a mere formula to incorporate. You'll learn to see your subject—any subject—just as life truly presents it to you. This is the secret to capturing the living, breathing sense of atmosphere so celebrated in the works of the Impressionist painters.

A revision of Susan Sarbacks' illuminating Capturing Radiant Color in Oils, this book offers twelve more years of fresh insights, new paintings and expanded coverage on soft pastels. The concepts explored here have been handed down through generations of artists: Sarback was taught Full-Color Seeing by master painter Henry Hensche, who learned it from Charles Hawthorne, a contemporary of Claude Monet. This step-by-step approach will add greater vitality to your artwork and forever change the way you see.

Synopsis:

Understanding light and color are core topics for any oil or pastel painter looking to see relationships between objects and painting them on canvas or paper. In Capturing Radiant Light and Color in Oils and Pastels painters will learn new ways of seeing and painting light and color like the Impressionists, one of the most popular and influential movements in art. Readers will expand their color perception and learn to bring this new awareness into their paintings. Susan Sarbach uses the full-color seeing method, a way to see and paint color as affected by the surrounding light. Examples and demonstrations of landscapes and still lifes are included so readers will learn how to interpret this method of seeing to any subject.
