Jen’s Picks: Achieve Color Harmonies

Color Harmonies
Paint Watercolors Filled with Light
By Rose Edin and Dee Jepsen

Inspired by the work of the great Impressionists, Rose Edin and Dee Jepsen show you how to use analogous colors (colors next to each other on the color wheel) and their complements to achieve lively, glowing effects in their new North Light book, Color Harmonies. By keeping palette-mixing to a minimum, placing pure color notes side by side, and applying other simple but powerful color tricks, you’ll create sparkling passages of color that attract your viewer’s eye, engage the imagination, and make your paintings shine.

Brimming with 30+ years of instruction from Rose and Dee, Color Harmonies is filled with great tips on using composition, value and drawing alongside color to achieve brilliant, dynamic paintings. 

•    Follow along with 5 step-by-step demonstrations to paint stunning, light-filled paintings.
•    Includes expert instruction on drawing and composition, techniques for adding texture and interest, making the most of light and shadow, and more.
•    Be inspired by gorgeous landscape, flower and figure paintings throughout.
