Three Color PaintingBook - 2009
In this user-friendly and truly liberating book Stan shows how numerous shades can be achieved and stunning paintings created using just three paint colours - alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue and yellow ochre - plus white. Stan takes the reader through 20 demonstration paintings and explains not just how to paint, but the thought process involved in doing so. The demonstrations are divided into two sections: those using watered-down gouache, to create watercolor-style paintings and those using thick gouache, in the style of oil paintings. Using his techniques, he says, even a complete beginner will get a great result at the first attempt and the experienced artist will improve his painting.
