COLORS: A Workbook covers a range of skills for handling color, beginning with color perception — the ability to see color accurately — and color analysis — the ability to classify a color according to its hue, value and intensity.

Color Theory

I'm still reading the book. I have learnt about color for several years as an oil painter and I think some parts of this book has different way of learning, so I want to read carefully.

Colors A Workbook

I have just completed the exercises and will move on to the projects. The instructions are detailed, concise and easy to follow. The exercises that you do can be kept for a lifetime and constantly referred back to. I can't wait to do the projects and put what I have learned into practice.

Which colors to use??

This looks like a wonderful book although I have not yet studied it as I should, I think it will take some time to get used to all the steps, but would recommend this book to colored pencil enthusiasts.
