Powercolor: Master Color Concepts for All Media

The jargon of color theory and the unpredictability of mixing manufactured colors prevent many artists from using color to maximum advantage in their work. This comprehensive survey of color—its science, psychology, theory, and aesthetics—gives artists the knowledge and power to do more with color. Artists learn what color is; the color wheel; various types of color contrast (temperature, intensity, and value); how a medium's physical characteristics affect the use and appearance of color; how color has been used by artists throughout history; and how color 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 color.
