Color By Betty Edwards

by Edwards, Betty

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

While we recognize and treasure the beautiful use of color, reproducing what we see can be a challenge. Accessibly unweaving color’s complexity, this must-have primer is destined to be an instant classic.
