I have a little bit of background on colour theory, so I read this book expecting to learn much of colour in art. It is evident that the author has done much research in this area and has plenty of things to say. However, I felt that the book was badly written. Many sentences could have been broken down into two or more, because they contained several ideas, which were difficult to absorb. E.g., The author writes about an artist, who tried to show something in his art works, while mentioning his educational background and teacher and similar artists in one sentence! Despite re-reading several paragraphs several times, I had difficulty understanding what the author was trying to say. Perhaps the book is more suited for people, who already have knowledge on many of the artists, but not for newbies to art like me. The book should be re-written until the message of each chapter is more clear!
