Summary

This text introduces students in all the visual arts to color theory, the physiology and psychology of color perception, and the physics of color. It also offers tips for putting that knowledge into practice in a variety of media, from painting and other fine arts to interior design, architecture, fashion design, ceramics, textile design, and needlework. Four dimensions of color--hue, value, intensity, and temperature--are discussed in detail. Based on the author's many years of teaching the subject to students from all the major concentrations of the visual arts, the text presents concepts in a logical order, with each chapter building on the previous one.

Text Features:

  • Full-color reproductions of masterpieces of the fine and decorative arts further enhance the content and complex concepts
  • Practical exercises invite students to experiment with color by creating compositions that follow established principles of design
  • Examples of compositions by the author's own students enhance the readers' understanding as do diagrams, including color wheels illustrative of different theories
  • Glossary of key terms and bibliography of texts and publications
  • Appendix features: Coloring Agents-Dry Binders; Coloring Agents-Liquid Binders; Coloring Agents-Pigment Origins and Characteristics of Common Colors; Hue-Various Art Media matched to Color-Aid Paper Pure Hues; Color Legibility Rankings
