B4021. Brilliant History of Color in Art / Finlay
B4021. The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay. 2014. 128pp. 9"x10.15". Hardcover

This is no dry discussion of pigments, but rather an engaging and entertaining exploration around the colors artist use and how they came to be. The author tells of Cleopatra and purple, Napoleon and the graphite pencil, cobalt blue and forged Vermeers, and much more as she brings us into her quest to uncover the origins and science of color. All is related in the warm conversational style that helped make Finlay’s earlier book on color so popular. But unlike that earlier book, this rich narrative is illustrated in full-color throughout - with 166 major works of art, most from the collections of the Getty Museum.

B3334. 100 Flowers / Yang O-shi
100 Flowers: Chinese Techniques for Painting Flowers by Yang O-shi. 240pp. 8.25"x12". Paper

Victoria Pittman has taught a popular flower painting class for many years at the summer calligraphy conference. Her flowers are made with a few strokes - ideal for envelopes, cards and small calligraphic pieces. As a resource for that class, she highly recommends this book: "This is a particularly good book, with many great examples and great illustrations." It provides sequential steps for painting 100 different flowers, from simple to fairly complex, along with finished paintings. Does not cover the basics of watercolor, just painting these flowers.
