Quote from Joy Turner Luke (Joy is a leading expert in paints, pigments and colour use)
“This is a landmark book for artists. It contains a vast amount of information that is not available elsewhere. No matter how knowledgeable you are as an artist, you are going to be surprised by many of the facts in this book. It is the first to cover the wide range of pigments currently used in artists’ watercolours and will help safeguard your work. The art teacher and artist buying paints have been looking at a giant jigsaw puzzle with most of its pieces missing. Michael Wilcox has supplied those pieces.”
