Summary

Millions have learned to draw by following the methods of Dr. Betty Edwards's bestselling book The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Now, in the same way that artists progress from drawing to painting, Edwards moves from the black-and-white of drawing into color. This much-awaited guide, Color: A Course in Mastering the Art of Mixing Colors, provides a practical method of harmonizing combinations of colors through the use of techniques tested and honed in Dr. Edwards's intensive five-day color workshops. By means of exercises ranging from simple to challenging, illustrated with more than 125 step-by-step images, this book offers a deep understanding of the basic structure of color, including how to see what is really out there rather than what you think you know about colored objects. Intended for the novice in color as well as for more experienced artists and designers, the exercises focus on how to successfully mix and combine hues. While we may appreciate the beauty and versatility of color, working with colors can be a challenge. This book, a must-have for explaining the complexities of color, gives you confidence in your use of color and deepens your artistic perception.
