Follow these 4 simple steps to mix more than 500 color combinations:

STEP ONE  Look in the Color Guidance Index for the subject you want to paint—for example, “Lilac, purplish.”

STEP TWO  Find the Color Recipe with the subject’s recipe number (“268”) and a photo of the actual paint mixture.

STEP THREE  Use the Color Mixing Grid to measure each paint color.

STEP FOUR  Mix the color. It’s that easy!

Also Includes Instruction on Rendering Skies & Clouds, Observing Colors in Nature, Painting Trees and Mountains.

The plastic Color Mixing Grid (included) ensures accurate paint measurements!

Synopsis:

Following the format of the other books in the series, Color Mixing Recipes for Landscapes offers a robust index of landscape subjects that correspond to the featured color mixing swatches. This useful book also discusses how color is influenced by the time of day, the angle of the sun, and changing seasons, making it a must-have in every oil and acrylic artist's reference library.
