The jargon of colour theory and the unpredictability of mixing manufactured colours prevent many artists from using colour to maximum advantage in their work. This comprehensive survey of colour--its science, psychology, theory, and aesthetics--gives artists the knowledge and power to do more with color. Artists learn what colour is; the colour wheel; various types of colour contrast (temperature, intensity, and value); how a medium's physical characteristics affect the use and appearance of colour; how colour has been used by artists throughout history; and how colour can be used effectively in a variety of theories, methods of applications, and mediums. This is an invaluable resource for artists who want to expand their knowledge about and invigorate their use of colour.
