Colors Move! Colors breathe and live!
Colors are lively and attractive and feed our artistic dreams. Let’s learn to use colors in a way that brings them to life. We will learn about how colors move, and relate to each other.
Working with color is attractive and yet challenging. In this book we will develop a flexible and lively understanding of color on a personal level. This will help us become more aware of and sensitive to colors, and to better understand their interactions and uses.
All too often we think of colors in a static way, instead of understanding how dynamic they really are. We have a natural sense of color that can be built on and developed.
Painting, photography, fashion, anywhere you use colors these ideas apply.
There have been many great researchers into color including:
Rudolf Arnheim, Josef Albers, Johannes Itten, Michel Eugène Chevreul, Isaac Newton, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others. As we develop new ways to use and understand color, we are also standing on the shoulders of those who have come before us.
