Nature is teeming with incredible colours. But have you ever wondered how the colours 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 colours are so wonderful and diverse that they inspire 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 colours and their shades. You will learn that the colours and elements you find in nature are often closely connected.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A book filled with magnificent, hand-painted illustrations (in the style of Katie Daisy) by rising stars of Czech watercolor illustration
  • A great encyclopedia of animals, plants and minerals
  • Unique interactive concepts: the reader can relate individual shades to plants, animals, rock, and various landscapes of the same colour in accordance with their names (e.g. raspberry red, turquoise)
  • A short lesson on how to mix and combine colours

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!
