........Comments From Purchasers:
  "... inspirational and practical at the same time ... this book will be put next to "The Art Spirit" and "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" on the bookshelf in my studio. 'The Language...' begins where the other two books end ... a book for all artists .. destined to be a classic." 
  "I am blown away. After 20 years as a professional artist and having taken a multitude of workshops, I did not know 90% of the information contained in this book, even though, as I learned, that the information is innate within us. ... Just the section on color, color families, and the Munsell Color System is well worth the price . ... never saw the Munsell Color System explained so well for the artist ..."
   
  "OMG. OMG.  I will never be able to approach my canvas or look at a scene in the same way again. ... am now cursed to a life-long process of learning to express "my song" in my paintings ... can never thank you enough, Charlotte"
   
  "... stunned and amazed that much of the information contained in "The Language ..." has never been available before. Thank you, thank you, Charlotte, for putting this book together and not holding anything back."
   
  ABOUT
 

"Art demands something of you: your experiences, your memories, your imagination, and your heart transformed together with what you see in nature. To do otherwise relegates you to a recorder of facts. Putting yourself into your art is not easy. It takes courage, a self-knowing, knowledge, and a study of nature herself." Charlotte Wharton believes this so strongly that she has written The Language of Energy in Art: Finding Your Vision for artists who also want more for their art.

Charlotte presents a few of the Renaissance artists who used or discovered the principles and theories that constitute the language today. For ease of understanding, the language is systematically laid out for you and is accompanied with black and white illustrations by Charlotte.

The book offers insights into the various components of color and many color charts. An introduction to the Munsell Color System highlights its unique complements, discords, and psychological effects, which heighten the impact of any painting.

Charlotte takes you through various genres of painting: the landscape and atmospheric principles, the figure in the landscape, the interpretive portrait, and the figure in the interior. Galleries for each genre present Charlotte’s work along with descriptions explaining each painting’s application of the language.

Let the information within these pages, the illustrations, the paintings, and the explanations guide you in finding or honing your unique vision, your voice, and your knowledge of composing for the fullest of expression."
