Staff Reviews

Inspiring and visually instructive, this is a perfect art book for new artists. Organized by color, each page has a variety of illustrations, from seashells to yaks. The bottom of each page shows twelve shades within each color, and the end has a small discussion about mixing colors. Fantastic!

Magnificent, hand-painted illustrations by a rising star of Czech watercolor illustration--perfect for beginning painters Nature is teeming with incredible colors. But have you ever wondered how the colors green, yellow, pink, or blue might taste or smell? What could they sound like? Or what would they feel like if you touched them?Nature's colors are so wonderful and diverse they inspired people to use the names of plants, animals, and minerals when labelling all the nuances. Join us on a journey to discover the twelve most well-known colors and their shades. You will learn that the colors and elements you find in nature are often closely connected.Inside you'll find:
  • Book filled with magnificent, hand-painted illustrations (in the style of Katie Daisy) by rising stars of Czech watercolor illustration
  • A great encyclopedia of animals, plants and minerals
  • Unique interactive concepts: the reader can relate individual shades to plants, animals, rock, and various landscapes of the same color in accordance with their names (e.g. raspberry red, turquoise)
  • A short lesson on how to mix and combine colors
Will you be able to find all the links in each chapter? And if you are an aspiring artist, take our course at the end of the book and you'll be able to paint as exquisitely as nature itself does
