The first three sections:
As anyone who has clicked on my “Post Page” will know, I have written four books: one on “drawing”, one on “painting”, one on “creativity” and one on “the science of how artists use their eyes”, which underpins much of the originality of the other parts. The volumes on drawing and painting are both divided into two books. The one on painting is divided into “Painting with Light” and “Painting with “Colour”. I have already Posted all the chapters of “Painting with Light”. I am now progressing to “Painting with Colour”. This Post provides an “Introduction” to this second book within a book. It starts with a list of the three subdivisions:
- Colour and feeling (Chapter 19).
- Local colour interactions (Chapters 20-24)
- Shadows, shading and highlights (Chapters 25 -28)
The final section of the book provides:
- Concluding syntheses based on both “Painting with Colour” and “Painting with Light”( Chapters 29-31)
