Colour, 2nd Edition

Book Description

Taking a practical approach to color, Color: A workshop for artists and designers is an invaluable resource for art students and professionals alike. With its sequence of specially designed assignments and in-depth discussions, it effectively bridges the gap between color theory and practice to inspire confidence and understanding in anyone who works with color.

This second edition has been carefully reviewed and revised throughout. Presented in a new larger format, it includes much-enhanced sections on key color principles such as color perception, visual structure, materials and techniques, psychological experience of color, and color composition in digital formats.

Generously illustrated—including all-new, contemporary examples—this book provides a unique set of tools that makes the complex theory of color accessible and practical.
