Sue Archer uses complete command of the watercolor medium to realize the bright, clean colors and strong light that define her work. Her analytical style requires careful planning and thorough knowledge of composition.
Sue boosts your artistic confidence with a series of lessons on pigment quality, design principles, and color theory, culminating in a glowing still life of a pineapple. You'll learn to control value and contrast, harness the powerful white of your paper, design negative space, and energize your subjects with complementary colors.
The lessons combine clearly illustrated theory with live demonstrations and practical examples from Sue's personal gallery. Each concept comes in handy during the pineapple demonstration. Sue flows complementary colors onto pre-wet paper to create subtle transitions. You'll learn to cover large areas with transparent darks and add texture as you work.
You'll master your palette and paint with aplomb in Commanding Color with Sue Archer
