Color: a course in mastering the art of mixing colors
This guide distills the enormous existing knowledge about color theory into a practical method of working with color to produce harmonious combinations. Using techniques tested and honed in her five-day intensive color workshops, Edwards provides a basic understanding of how to see color, how to use it, and - for those involved in art, painting, or design - how to mix and combine hues. Including more than 125 color images and exercises that move from simple to challenging, this volume explains how to - see what is really there rather than what you 'know' in your mind about colored objects; perceive how light affects color, and how colors affect one another; manipulate hue, value, and intensity of color and transform colors into their opposites; balance color in still-life, landscape, figure, and portrait painting; understand the psychology of color; and harmonize color in your surroundings.
