Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 The sixth edition of Color is an invaluable introduction to the art and the science of color and its uses. It provides a solid and thorough foundation in the aesthetic and practical basics of this all-pervasive subject, with many quotations from artists past and present on the subtleties of their techniques. The material on new technologies has been reorganized abd updated so that pigment mixtures are now explored before light mixtures.

Synopsis:

For introductory courses in Color and Color Theory in Art Design and in the studio curriculum.

 

 Addressed to artists and art students of all media, this text provides an informative but non-dogmatic introduction to the many different approaches to understanding color.
