In Simplifying Design & Color for Artists, Linda Kemp seeks to help you think like a designer and colourist, sharing negative painting techniques to encourage thinking outside the box when it comes to mastering basic painting concepts. Learn how to plan out your projects to ensure you have control over the directions they take in your painting, and utilize shapes, lines, and movements to add interest to your designs. Take advantage of colour theory basics while mixing colours to avoid frustration and make the right decisions when choosing which colours to use in your work paint by hue, value, and intensity. Free yourself of composition constraints and try working from basics shapes rather than drawing images before putting the brush to canvas. Build on all these basics and more to develop a holistic view of your creations and get a better sense of how to go forward with each step in the process.
