EDIT: After looking through this book some more, I am even more impressed. It could easily be used as a textbook for a university-level art class, there is a TON of material here. You could use this one book for a lifetime of painting.
SIDE NOTE AND A GREAT FIND!!!
Benjabelle Mini Brush Tree:
I know these are made for make up brushes, but the key word here is" brushes". As Artists we need to keep and
dry our brushes tip down, especially watercolour brushes as a size 12 in Pure Kolinsky Sable
will cost you up to $400 retail and around $300 on sale!! When water gets into the brushes' ferrule, it degrades the brush and
the brush also CANNOT be left with the tip down or standing in water.
This is the perfect solution. A Must have!!! And it comes in different sizes and colours. I have mine assembled and then I mounted each one on a block of styrofoam to make it even taller. Just cut in a cross and used glue to keep it there. I will decorate the styrofoam to make look better LOL
Other books that would help you learn even if you are an intermediate painter is:
For any Artist:
Color Mixing Bible, by Ian Sidaway
"COLOR WORKS, the Crafters Guide to Color" by Deb Menz
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.
