Reseña del editor
Push Color Beyond the Ordinary
Let go of what you see, and paint what you feel! Brilliant Color reveals a new way of thinking about color, empowering you to push the envelope beyond ordinary realism into bold landscapes full of life and energy.
The transformation begins by learning to see color as value. Starting with short demos featuring diagrams, color wheels and side-by-side visual comparisons, award-winning artist Julie Gilbert Pollard shows you how to liberate your use of color to capture the lively essence of every landscape. It's not about complex color theory or painstaking attempts to paint exactly what you see. Rather, it's about pushing color to warmer or cooler extremes for stronger contrasts.
Julie's signature style blends acrylic underpainting with water-mixable oils to produce striking luminosity in less time and fewer layers than traditional oil painting techniques. Ten complete step-by-step demonstrations show you how to paint gorgeous landscapes with an inspiring range of settings and seasons.
Each in-depth demonstration features foolproof color mixing charts, reference photos, initial sketches, and numbered steps with detailed captions. Simply follow along and give it a try. In no time, you'll have what it takes to make your colors zing and your paintings glow.

From the very opening, this book delivered the goods that it promised. In fact, from the author's introduction I got an idea that was worth the price of the book many times. It was an idea about painting that had been brewing in my mind, but that I was unable to find the words for. I paraphrase: The eye may see as a camera does, but the mind's eye sees altered imagined images that it wants and hopes for.
This is the whole secret of art- to "trick" the eyes into seeing what the mind's eyes want to see.
The author goes on to explain the secrets of how exactly to do this. She does so in an almost mathematical manner so that you really cannot miss it if you give it your effort and time. Nothing vague, nothing ethereal or mystical, just solid information on how to use value, color, and contrast to make you paintings sing with color and impact.
For me, the author's words at the introduction were worth the price, but the rest of the book is a treasure of bonuses.
To me, color is the adult sport in art. It's the challenge that awaits you once you gain some skill at drawing, and some understanding of compositional design as well as skill with your medium. Do yourself an artistic favor, and get this book and study these potent color strategies.
