My art teacher recommended this book so that I might study colour. I've been busy reading it (that's why there have been no posts!) and I am now ready to embark on the practical side. You see, this isn't just a theory book, it's a workshop.
In addition to covering the fundamentals of colour theory,David Hornung provide assignments that guide the student through a variety of colour experiences, moving logically from the basic structural concepts to experiments with colour applications.
Gouache is the medium of choice, this also caused a slight delay as I didn't have much in this medium. (Ching, Ching, went the cashiers till!). However, I now have all my materials with the exception of two small screw top jars (the small hotel jam jars would be brilliant, but for some reason I don't have any left).
I've already learnt so much from the first two chapters, now I need to get on with the practicals.
