Color is very important to the creative process. Understanding color is paramount to being able to dissect reference materials or inspirational vistas or subjects. Understanding how colors behave within a piece or environment gives you an enormous advantage when it comes to creating your own visions.
We can all look at a piece of art and know how we feel about the use of color, and whether we like it or not. But understanding why colors can make you feel a certain way (hot, cold, scared, angry, hopeful) is the key to being able to project much more emotion into the pictures you create. In this chapter we will talk about how to break down the ways to deal with color and how it augments your ability to create emotive imagery.
