A Course In Mastering the Art of Mixing Colors

This guide to color was written by Betty Edwards, author of the world's most widely used drawing instruction book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.

In Color: A Course in Mastering the Art of Mixing Colors Edwards employs her highly effective teaching techniques to provide a practical method for working with color. Readers gain 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.

In these pages, Edwards shows you 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
  • Understand hue, value, and intensity
  • Transform colors into their opposites
  • Harmonize colors in your surroundings
  • Analyze the psychology of color

Breaking down the complexities of color in an easily accessible way, this is a must-have primer for anyone who works with or is interested in color.
