Kind of missing an important step 2011/8/29
投稿者 L. Sadler - (Amazon.com)
形式: リング製本
Bought this book because the author's concept of mixing colors seemed interesting. After all, there's this neat grid to use so you mix the right percentage of colors. Here's my problem. As the book states, "each recipe indicates a specific Water Level." Yep, the author says "specific." Really? From the book: Level one requires the "greatest amount of water," level 2 "slightly less water," level 3 requires "less water than level 2" ....wow, real "specific." So is the author's idea of level 1 a drop of water from an eye dropper or a teaspoon of water? And through the Color Recipes, the author specifies water levels of 2.5, which I guess is slightly less water than level 2 but slightly more water than level 3 - whatever that may be. Pretty book if you want to look at colors. Fairly worthless if you want to learn to mix colors.

Excellent Color Source for Anyone 2008/6/21

I've been an artist all my life and yet never really tackled watercolors.
So, since colors are the hardest part of watercolor painting, especially greens, I wanted a book that I could just glance at and have a recipe for the color I need. Sometimes you can end up with mud, or a color that clashes with your intention of the color you have in your head.
This book really helps me to just turn a page...pick a color I want and use the right combos to get the tone and hue I need.
It's a great tool. I highly recommend it for a beginner or anyone just wanting a color reference at their fingertips. It's a lot more time saving than making your own.

Helpful but with caveat 2011/4/23

This book is a spiral bound hardcover. It's pretty thin at 48 pages but enough.

The colour recipes are presented in varying proportions of pigment and water. That's great in showing the subtle colour variations of various mixes. Most other books I've see just mix the colours 50 percent each. This book has a few examples with three colour mixes as well. The starting colours used are from the colour wheel.

In addition to the colour recipes, there are also value and intensity recipes. Unfortunately, only a few selected colours are used. The value recipes feature yellow, red and blue. The intensity recipes mixes complementary colours to give different earth tones.

The downside of the book is the author used too many starting colours. Just for yellow, you have Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cadmium Yellow Deep, Naples Yellow, Lemon Yellow and Gamboge. That's eight yellow colours if you're counting. There's also no mention of the brand used.

There are some text on colour theory, all very elementary, but good as a starter guide. At the back are four pages on mixing portrait colours. It presents the general idea of creating skin tones but too few examples are given as application.

And finally, there's a detachable plastic sheet with mixing grids provided. It's cool but not necessary. Well, you can use your own palette for mixing so why mix on the piece of plastic?

In reality, the resulting mixes are just a reference point of what is possible. Having so many starting colours can get confusing. It's not such a big deal because the multiple colours listed already gives a general idea of what to pick. It's still helpful for that reason.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

WARNING: Inadequate Description Above 2008/12/17
投稿者 Dick Johnson - (Amazon.com)
形式: リング製本 Amazonで購入
The "Look Inside" feature (above) left out the inside of the front cover. Surprise!!! To fully use this book you must have 28 different colors to start with! There are two different disclaimers alerting you that paint colors differ from different brands and that "you may need to adjust the recipes accordingly". Perhaps I missed it, but I couldn't find anywhere what brand he used in making the book!

The text "instructions" are the epitome of minimalist information, and are of virtually no help. The 4 pages devoted to portraits seem as if they were written by someone afraid of giving away too many secrets. Example 1: for skin tones, he tells you what colors to use but the instructions then tell you to "manipulate them" or "experiment with" to get what you want. This is a book of color formulas not guess work. Example 2: for portrait features and proportions, he tells you "use a mirror to practice accurate placement of features". Then "Use a reversing mirror to see yourself as others do." Wow!

Shame on Walter Foster (publisher) for a very inadequate description and selection for us to review before buying. I'm looking for a book by someone who knows how to teach!

This is not useless. The recipes are helpful if you have all the colors. The acetate sheet for mixing is a bit of a stretch - remove it from the book and put it in a flat bottom pan.

Excellent "how-to" book to learn color theory and color blending. Durable cover and pages. Small size makes it practical and convenient to carry to art class. I got the three book series From Mr Powell.
