Instill more emotion in your paintings through Color Harmony

Color is one of the most powerful tools an artist can use to capture a mood or express an emotion. However, it can also be intimidating. In Color Harmony in Your Paintings , artist and teacher Margaret Kessler takes a friendly approach to help you understand and apply the principles of color to greatly improve your work.

Through clear, instructive illustrations and painting examples, you'll learn how to use color to create expressive moods, unity, rhythm and eye-catching designs as well as heighten the impact of your paintings. No matter what your skill level, you'll find encouraging guidance for using color in any medium.

Kessler also provides many finished works and four oil demos making specific points about color usage. Once you understand color principles and when, where, why and how to apply these ideas, you will have the tools for building color harmony.
