Magnificent, hand-painted illustrations by a rising star of Czech watercolor illustration―perfect for beginning painters! Nature is teeming with incredible colors. But have you ever wondered how the colors green, yellow, pink or blue might taste or smell? What could they sound like? Or what would they feel like if you touched them? Nature’s colors are so wonderful and diverse they inspired people to use the names of plants, animals, and minerals when labelling all the nuances. Join us on a journey to discover the twelve most well-known colors and their shades. You will learn that the colors and elements you find in nature are often closely connected. Will you be able to find all the links in each chapter? And if you are an aspiring artist, take our course at the end of the book and you’ll be able to paint as exquisitely as nature itself does!

COLORS IN NATURE is a beautifully illustrated book of art that features animals and plants. The book walks through each color with a short poem and oversized pages with many animals and plants featuring the color. White, yellow, light brown, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, brown, grey, and black are all included with some backmatter about mixing colors.

What I loved: The book features beautiful illustrations with each animal and plant labeled by name. There is a great spread of colors, and the poems on each page are short but lovely. The oversized pages are intriguing to glance through and think about variations of each color. This book is a great choice as a coffee table style book but even better as a tool for budding artists. The book will help to give elementary school aged readers ideas about colors, shades, and different plants and animals that they can draw in nature. Nature features span from lakes to flowers to bugs to birds to fish and more. The inclusion of the names of the pictured animals and plants will be helpful for children who want to look them up to learn more.

What left me wanting more: As a small point, although it is elegant, the names of animals and plants are written in a cursive-type font that may be difficult for younger children to read. I also would have loved some animal or plant facts to add to the educational value.

Final verdict: A book perfect for budding artists, COLORS OF NATURE is a beautifully illustrated book of animals and plants with the featured colors that could spark new artistic ideas and color experimentation.
