Including more than 125 color images and exercises that move from simple to challenging, this volume explains how to:<br><br><li>see what is really there rather than what you know in your mind about colored objects<br><li>perceive how light affects color, and how colors affect one another<br><li>manipulate hue, value, and intensity of color and transform colors into their opposites<br><li>balance color in still-life, landscape, figure, and portrait painting<br><li>understand the psychology of color<br><li>harmonize color in your surroundings<br><br>While we recognize and treasure the beautiful use of color, reproducing what we see can be a challenge.
