A master class in a book, this volume offers a comprehensive, contemporary, and accessible foundation of color theory and advanced techniques every oil painter at every skill level needs in their toolbox. Written by well-known artist, expert teacher, and successful art-instruction author Todd M. Casey, The Oil Painter’s Color Handbook provides everything the oil painter needs to understand all aspects of color. Beginning with an in-depth look at the use of color throughout art history, Casey then breaks down the process of understanding color into easily digestible lessons--each clearly explained and richly illustrated with both historic and contemporary paintings--so that the reader can learn progressively and layer more complex ideas as each skill is mastered. Through clear instruction, step-by-step demonstrations, and challenging exercises, the readers will learn to apply these techniques and concepts to their own painting.
