Description

Product Description

Internationally renowned artist and best selling author Stephen Quiller shows readers how to discover their own personal "color sense" in Color Choices, a book that offers readers a fresh perspective on perfecting their own color styles.

With the help of his own "Quiller Wheel," a special foldout wheel featuring 68 precisely placed colors, the author shows artists how they can develop their own unique color blends. First, Quiller demonstrates how to use the wheel to interpret color relationships and mix colors more clearly. Then he explains, step by step, how to develop five structured color schemes, apply underlays and overlays, and use color in striking, unusual ways. This book will bring out every artist''s unique sense of color whether he or she works in oil, watercolor, acrylics, gouache, or casein.

About the Author

Stephen Quiller is an internationally recognized artist and teacher and is the author of the bestselling art guides Acrylic Painting Techniques and Painter''s Guide to Color. He lives in Crede, Colorado.

Practical color theory for painters

I’ve been taking deep dives into learning during this quarantine. One of the subjects I decided to go heavy on is color theory. I’ve been using color in painting and interiors since I was a kid and I “know” what colors I need to use instinctively...but not why and I didn’t ever think about the structure behind my choices. I decided it was time to learn all the rules. I’ve read about 4 books on color theory so far, and this is the best yet because it is written for painters.

Despite many many years of painting & interiors classes, and a semester of color theory, I had only been taught the usual color theory based on the typical color wheel.

As my painting progressed, I began to want to learn about pigments and as any painter can tell you, the regular color wheel doesn’t always apply when it comes to working with color in pigments.

This color wheel Quiller developed is seriously brilliant...so practical! And he talks about which companies make which colors- slightly out of date but still helpful. Then he even displays what colors look like when you mix them with different ways of creating neutrals. It’s just a way of breaking down color, value and intensity that makes so much sense, and will save you a lot of time experimenting if you haven’t already done a lot of this.

I also love how he breaks down each color scheme. I’m working now I’m laying more attention to what kind of color schemes I’m using along with values. I think the more I memorize what is what, the more time I will save from just intuiting what colors should be mixing up, and how.

Definitely worth the read.

I bought this book thinking it was a revised edition of the 1989 book, after all the web page says "Publisher: Watson-Guptill; New edition edition (February 1, 2002)"

It is a new paperback edition of the original 1989 book.
The Quiller Color Wheel in this Malaysian edition has several major color errors. For example, the Magenta in the color wheel is Ultramarine Violet.

The original book is 5+ stars. I''ve given this poor reproduction 3 stars because his newer book is better and there are color mistakes in the printing.

Skip this lousy reproduction and either go for one of his newer books Painter''s Guide to Color (1999), Watermedia Painting with Stephen Quiller: The Complete Guide to Working in Watercolor, Acrylics, Gouache, and Casein (2008) or seek out an original 1989 edition.

I love to read about how other people paint, but this book had just too little substance, with a slightly New Agey feel to it, and quickly became tedious. Mostly it consists of endless rather self-congratulatory critiques of the author''s own paintings. Unintentional comic relief is provided by occasional howlers such as making Burnt Sienna a more yellowish orange than Burnt Umber in the (modestly named) "Quiller color wheel."

In my opinion, a much better source for these topics (including a correct version of such a color wheel) would be "Color and Light" by James Gurney. Also, you''ll learn more from watching the drawmixpaint videos on color mixing on youtube than from this book.

This book has been invaluable to me as I learn to paint! (I have my BFA in graphic design but barely learned color theory) The examples and clear explanations in this book really have been a tremendous help. A few times he’s mentioned something in a paragraph that I’ve needed some visual clarification on and boom, next page is a large picture showing exactly that. The writing is in a kind tone that feels like you’re a student in his class. I also don’t find it the least bit “self congratulatory” as another reviewer said, Mr. Quiller is simply using his paintings as prime examples. 100% would recommend!

I''ve been searching for that perfect book which would deepen my understanding of color and the color wheel so that I can apply it to my quilt-making. Reading Stephen Quiller''s 144-page book on color theory provided several ah-ha moments for me. The title says it all, "Color Choices - Making Color Sense Out Of Color Theory". He teaches workshops on color, so this book was extremely informative and simple to understand. I actually found it to be an enjoyable read.

My main question around color has always been, "So what? Yes, colors lay next to each other and opposite each other on the color wheel, so what?" It finally connected for me, thanks to Stephen''s down-to-earth writing style that, "Color is magic! And what a gift it is to use color in a way that truly expresses what the artist feels."

It''s difficult to articulate those ah-ha moments in a product review, but here''s how one moment worked for me: to assist the reader, Stephen offers sections in the book called, "Six Studies". There are 6 of the same subjects painted differently 6 times using various color schemes and he asks you to, "Notice how each study differs in color emphasis, value, and intensity. Also look at how the various moods have been developed, ranging from calm and serene, to austere, to fantasy-like, to dynamic and powerful." Because of the 6 side-by-side comparisons, my eye traveled differently around each painting and I began to understand the theory of contrast. Or, I would like one painting and despise another connecting to the theories of intensity and color harmony. Wow! I actually get it!

Then he explains what the color is doing for you, for example, "The bright orange has been neutralized to create a distinct mood." He''s an art instructor, so at the end of each chapter he offers a "Workshop" where he provides exercises for the painter. I continue to find great value in re-reading and experiencing this book and I don''t even paint!

If you are a begginner skip this book, examples here in this book are not simple, most of the time confusing, for begginers eyes you wont be able to see what he is trying to explain. Because examples are not simple to make the point, they have similar values or chroma that would make you get confused.

Also this is not a book for digital painters, if you are a digital artist and a begginner skip it. I recommend this more to traditional artist that have a better eye in watching color values. I wish the examples were more easier to make the point of each topic easier to grab.

While I am a watercolour painter, this book also talk to the acrylic and oil artist. This book has a lot of information about colour and how it works in order to have an outstanding painting with colors helping each other rather than it looking chaotic and somehow out of sync. The only other books that I would recommend on color that I have read so that anyone can understand are below.

In addition, I would recommend

PANTONEs Guide to Communicating with color by Eiseman.

It is a great book to use to understand the psychology behind color and how it is used to communicate a mood or feeling. Let''s face it, Marketing does this all the time and it can also be used as a guide when deciding what hues you want to use in your artwork. I love this book and is a great cheat reference for me and also has some surprising color combinations that I would never have thought of.

For any Artist:
Color Mixing Bible, by Ian Sidaway
_________________________
"COLOR WORKS, the Crafters Guide to Color" by Deb Menz

FOR ANYONE who wants to know about COLOR THEORY this text breaks it down so that ANYONE can understand this complex
subject. I learnt more about color theory in this book than all others put together because I now "Understand" the concept.
While this book is for the textile artist, ALL artists should get it and it also has cut outs to use when choosing your
colour palette whether it be for Fashion Design or Art.

I can’t say for sure if it’s for beginners only, it seems like any level artists can find something useful in it, I found a lot of small interesting…not tips, i call it “moments”, which I didn’t pay attention before in the painting process. Overall easy to read and comprehend information, the author has a friendly attitude and wants to share his knowledge, not like some other authors which could be found having this a little arrogant attitude towards a reader so to speak :) Beautifully printed, very good quality, overall I really like it.

Very good reference book to experiment with colour practice and tame the subject. I would recommend it to any serious painter apprentice. Covers WC, acrylics, and oil but I think it works very well for WC and the effort to identify the colours by brand is very helpful.
