Ian starts the book by highlighting the importance of colour, and how the choice of colour can mean the success or failure of any project. He uses science to help describe what colour is and how it manifests itself. The main body of the book shows artists how to use a palette and how to organise yourself prior to mixing. Ian works through all primary, secondary and tertiary colours showing the range of options available and possible mixes. This book helps artists understand how to mix colours in different mediums and how colour can help to develop their work. Artworks illustrate how to put theory into practise. All of this makes this book suitable for all artists whether they are a beginner or a professional.

This fine book covers color theory for beginners. Sidaway (The Instant Artist) offers brief sections on the science of color, theory, and pigments, plus numerous color-mixing charts in oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, soft pastels, pencils, and inks. Stephen Quiller's book Color Choices: Making Color Sense Out of Color Theory, originally published in cloth in 1989 and now out in paperback, is for the advanced artist who wants to experiment with glazing methods or study the color theory of Rembrandt, Turner, Vermeer, Hopper, O'Keeffe, and John Henry Twachtman. This inspiring, creative approach to color could well be supplemented by David Pyle's What Every Artist Needs To Know About Paints & Colors, which covers vital health and safety issues and the use of color in computer graphics.
