Learn the limited palette painting method from an expert!
A 128-page paperback book by Stan Kaminski.
A good introduction to the use of gouache (opaque watercolour paint) and the information on how to obtain a huge range of colours from a very limited palette can be translated to any painting medium.
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 watercolour-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.
Warwickshire artist Stan Kaminski has been a professional artist for 38 years, working in design studios, advertising and now as a fine artist and teacher. He has vast experience, has won many prizes and has achieved excellent prices for his paintings at auction. One of his paintings was accepted into David Shepherds Wildlife Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.
Stan is a respected and much sought after tutor of painting, providing lessons from his well appointed studio near Kenilworth in the heart of the English Midlands. He is the originator of the ground breaking 3 colour painting method that enables even beginners to achieve outstanding results through a clear understanding of how to observe and interpret the subject rather than simply blindly copying. Restricting the palette brings cohesion and insight into hue and tonal value. Mixing all colours from the three essentials of yellow ochre, red and blue educates the eye far better than rather relying upon overly complicated and expensive arrays of ready made colour.
