COLOUR - observations in botanical art

Are you fascinated by colour, an admirer of botanical art or an artist seeking to bring the colours of nature to life? If so, this pocket sized book is for you, as I share my ideas about colour mixing and matching and how to capture the different hues that we encounter in nature.

- An introduction to understanding colour.
- A focus on different colours in turn, with tips on how to use them for botanical watercolours.
- A colour mixing kit of acetate strips and paint samples, with exercises for you to try out.

The format is designed to be dipped into and the size compact enough to tuck in with art equipment.

As always, Julia’s new book is amazing! The print quality is brilliant and I absolutely love the additions that come with this book. The paint samples are great, the coloured acetate sheets are so helpful for beginners like me to be able to really ‘see’ the colours. Keep these books coming Julia, I will buy them all!!!

This book shipped on time all the way from Bath, England along with the book Leaves-observations in watercolour. I appreciate the small format which makes it a handy reference book that showcases Julia Trickey's beautiful artwork. It is well-organized to give me a good starting place on how to mix paints for botanicals in a wide spectrum of colors. The color mixing kit in the back is very helpful too to help me figure out what percentage of each primary color that I might need to arrive at my desired blend. Thank you, again, Julia Trickey!

As with all of Julia's publications, this one hits all the nails on all the heads of techniques, for beginners and the more experienced watercolourists in botanical art (and illustration). I can't recommend her publications highly enough and the samples of colours and overlays are brilliant experiences, no matter the stage one's reached. Thank you, Julia!
