The New color mixing companion

The New Color Mixing Companion is a modern, hands-on guide to working with color featuring approachable projects that each explore a different aspect of color mixing.

In The New Color Mixing Companion, artist and popular Instagrammer Josie Lewis (@josielewisart) offers easy lessons and exercises on how to mix color and create exciting palettes.

This comprehensive guide starts with a crash course in essential terminology and visual vocabulary, then shows you how to go beyond the wheel and basic theory with hands-on projects that illustrate and illuminate a variety of color elements and techniques. The materials used—including watercolor and acrylic paints, and found or purchased collage papers—are accessible, inexpensive, and readily available. Plus, this art guide includes easy-to-use templates featured in many of the projects; their modern geometric layouts yield stunning color arrangements.

With The New Color Mixing Companion, artists, crafters, and designers of all skill levels will learn to take color in a whole new direction!
