A Passion for Colour

Part homage and part how-to, this guide to the clever use of color in paper and textile arts is as motivating to budding artists and designers through its stunning finished projects as it is through the lessons.

A Passion for Colour

"Ruth Issett is passionate about colour, and in this exciting and vibrant book she explores the use of colour through her work as a textile artist, designer and embroiderer. Her highly practical approach begins with a detailed introduction to the range of colouring media, papers and fabrics available to the contemporary textile arts. She then takes the reader on an inspirational journey through all aspects of colour, including colour mixing; how to achieve intensity, vibrancy, and depth; working with opacity, transparency, and translucency; and colour selection and combination. Throughout the book, Ruth encourages the reader to experiment with and, above all, enjoy colour and the challenges it offers."--Back cover.
