I love to talk about art.
I am keen to discuss and share drawing experiences.
If there is anything you would like to know or discuss, please get in touch. Chances are other people will be wondering the same things that you are.
Using dry media means mixing colours right on the paper, as opposed to on a palette. Hence it is essential to understand colour theory. I would like to recommend two books each of which will explain how colours interact together and react off one another.
The Art of Color is by Johannes Itten. The edition I have is published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ISBN 0-471-28928-0. Originally published in German as Kunst der Farbe, my English edition was published in 1973.
Colour – A workshop for artists and designers by David Hornung (second edition). Published in 2012 by Laurence King Publishing Ltd; ISBN: 978-1-85669-877-1.
