Ruth Issett is
passionate about colour, and in this exciting and vibrant book she explores the
use of colour through her own work as a textile artist, designer and
embroiderer. The clear and informative text coupled with numerous examples of
Ruth's work make this not only a comprehensive guide for artists, designers and
students with an interest in the use of colour in textile work, but also a
beautiful 'must-have' book for anyone who simply loves colour. Throughout the
book the reader is encouraged to experiment with and, above all, enjoy colour
and the challenges it offers. It begins with detailed coverage of the range of
colouring media and surfaces available to the contemporary textile artist and
how these can be used with print and stitch. There follows an inspirational
journey through all aspects of colour, including colour mixing; adding tiny
touches of colour; achieving intensity, vibrancy and depth; working with
opacity, transparency and translucency; colour selection and combination; and
working with a limited palette.
