In addition to broadening your understanding of how colour significantly influences the mood and atmosphere of a painting, this book provides a working knowledge of the full range of Brusho colours, their individual characteristics, and how they behave when used dry or mixed with water.

Other colours that zing with summer sunshine include Sunburst Lemon, Cobalt Blue and Terracotta. Not missing out the luscious hues of Violet and Alizarin Crimson. Whilst my first book, The Art of Brusho, dealt with the basic techniques in more detail, you will still find all the instructions you need to be able to complete the demonstrations in this follow-up book, Brusho Colour Magic. Be prepared for another colour-filled adventure with Beautiful Brilliant Brusho!
