Color Mixing Recipes for Watercolor

Mixing Recipes for More than 450 Color Combinations
William Powell


Here is the definitive colour-mixing resource for watercolour artists. With a wide spectrum of paint recipes, each revealing the colour proportions and dilution level needed to achieve the featured swatch, this user-friendly book also includes a colour-mixing grid that makes measuring simple. Follow these four simple steps to mix more than 450 colour combinations:

  • Look in the Color Guidance Index for the subject you want to paint – for example, Eucalyptus Bark
  • Find the Color Recipe with the subjects recipe number ("293") and an example of the actual paint mixture
  • Use the Color Mixing Grid to measure each paint colour
  • Mix the colour

It is that easy! You will also learn about colour theory, mixing values, greying colour naturally, mixing portrait colours and more.
