Color Harmonies by Rose Eden is a fantastic addition to your instructional book collection. Rose Eden has given to us an unlimited amount of instruction and advice in one book, usually only found in many books. Her secrets of 30 years are tucked into this great book.

I have attended many of Rose Eden's workshops, have every book she has ever published and still love her new Color Harmonies. Believe me the secret in this book is not found in any other single book, many secrets are not found in any of her books. Just this one!

If you are a accomplished painter, there are new ideas here for you. If you are just beginning, this book covers everything and more than you need to start water color painting also an area of step-by-step. If you are intermediate, this book will help you to move forward with rewarding examples and a new view point.

I highly recommend this as THE number ONE water color instructional book of the year!!! It is also available for your Kindle. Give it a try!! Vivian

Having color harmony in your watercolor paintings is important. Rose Edin has many beautiful watercolor paintings in this book.She talks about materials, techniques, and how to create a strong composition. I like her use of reference photographs along with her finished painting.

I just received this book and have not had a chance to even spend time looking over the text. The painting are gorgeous, vibrant and so inspiring. Don't be misled by the cover art, as I was. Once i opened this book at a store I knew that i had to have it. I'm just a novice, but this will inspire everyone who loves color to learn to paint. I've bought over 30 books, because of my new passion for watercolors, and this is one of the very BEST.

Excellent book on watercolor and really like how she explains everything. It also goes into the different techniques and gives you homework to learn. I love this book.

For any Artist:
Color Mixing Bible, by Ian Sidaway

PANTONEs Guide to Communicating with color by Eiseman.

It is a great book to use to understand the psychology behind color and how it is used to
communicate a mood or feeling. Let's face it, Marketing does this all the time and it can also
be used as a guide when deciding what hues you want to use in your artwork. I love this book, it
is a great reference for me and also has some surprising color combinations that I would
never have thought of.

FOR ANYONE who wants to know about COLOR THEORY this text breaks it down so that ANYONE can understand this complex
subject. I learnt more about color theory in this book than all others put together because I now "Understand" the concept.
While this book is for the textile artist, ALL artists should get it and it also has cut outs to use when choosing your
colour palette whether it be for Fashion Design or Art.
