I've been a professional graphic designer for nearly 20 years, and recently have gone back to my first love, fine art. I smugly thought there wouldn't be too many books that could teach me the concepts of color theory better than I knew from college and work experience, but I've learned that once you change the medium, the core artistic concepts shift a bit too. The way to compose for graphic work is vastly different than it is for fine art. The same is true for how your artistic eye 'sees'.

This book covers the core concepts of fine art in a new and refreshing way. Learning to see the big shapes of composition, understanding color harmony - these are the foundation skills that build any great painting. No matter how many art books you already have in your library now (no comment), this is a golden addition.

The book was not as much about design as the title suggests. I did get some design tips that were helpful, like repeating shapes, relationships of line and overlapping frames. However I was disappointed in the exercises, either they were too simplistic, such as recreating composition plans (copying), or too complex with no explanation, as in the preparatory sketches.
Too much time and space spent on colour mixing and hue, which most artists already know, and any relationship to design was poorly explained.
This work could have benefited from a good editing, limiting it to subjects clearly related to design, and clear exercises that transition skills in design.

Negative space is another way of painting using design and color , and that maybe nothing new ,i think its a great way to paint and think about your art in another way.the book cover is beautiful and the pages inside are easy to understand and step by step. You can imagine using this technique in your own art and find it freeing new and exciting.I would recommend this book . The author I think explains color ,design and technique well and seems to want there readers to use this technique instead of how some art tech books seem to just be an advertisement of there own art work claiming to teach you nothing. The book I think would be great for beginner artists and advanced artists who wants to rethink and imagine something new.

I love this artist, but was hoping for more pictures of different paintings. It is very much like the previous book I bought entltled "Painting Outside The Lines," which I love. This book has nothing really new. Of course, the title does say design and color, so maybe I should have researched more and realized that I didn't need this book. If you are looking to learn about design and color, this is probably a great book for that. Linda also has CD's out that are great !!

I am familiar with some of this authors ideas and expanded on them for a long time now and thought that this book would be an expansion of her work. It is in the way h er work is shown in the illustrations,but I would not recommend this to a beginner because the instructions are not as consistent in their presentation as they could be. There are wonderful ideas lurking in the book if you know where to look and know something about painting, so I am enjoying it from that standpoint.

This design book is brilliant. I have worked as an artist all my life. I have been exposed to books on Design since the age of 5. None of them were useful across disciplines. I purchased this book for a friend who is a master quilter. she has become increasingly aware of the difference in design terminology between Fine Art and Quilting and believes the discipline and Design rules should be the same. This book is written for painting but the concepts and presentation are so clear it could apply to any discipline.

Overall very well done; good illustrations and directions. However, in some cases I was left wondering -- so which color and shape went on first? This was described well in the initial part of the book, but not so much later on. I would have loved some different subjects from leaves, branches and fish. Just a small detraction from a very good how-to book.
This book contained information on design and color that I have been exposed to before. However, Ms. Kemp's writing style and examples made that information more accessible and clearly understood. Written for watercolorists and acrylic artists, I found the information equally useful for me as an oil painter.
