This is a tremendous book.It explains clearly and interestingly how colour works, how to create colour harmony, different ways of using a colour wheel to create a variety of different types of colour schemes to suit individual needs and preferences. It is difficult to explain in a review how good this book is,but if you want to understand colour, and want to be guided in experimentation in different ways of using colour, I have never seen a book that nearly approaches this one in clarity and usefulness, and suggest you buy it!

Love this book! Plenty of ideas and exercises to make sense of it all. Like the spiral binding too.

Lots of ideas without all the scientific theory - liked the ring binder. Guaranteed to get you experienting with different combinations.

I'm truly disappointed by this book. First of all the author divides painters to Colorists and others whom base art on Value, claiming that values is not that important anymore. And later saying "all artists are Colorists at the heart" why inventing division and later unite them after all? This book is full of ideas but I didn't found explanation of anything. Analysis of paintings in this book does not explains why harmony and color works in examples, It's mostly artsy mumbo jumbo. I feel this books pull away from making art, exercises are time consuming and useless for representative artists in my opinion, and you are expected to own shop with paints, so many different pigments are required. Text is wrote clumsy and selectively, so often refer you to "find it in internet". Designers and contemporary artists, and maybe artists with art-block might find it more interesting, because how I said, the book is more like journal of personal ideas and force reader to analyzing and thinking, without imposing opinions. I'm disappointed mostly because I read other far better books about color theory - better read James Gurney or Andrew Loomis books first, and leave this one as a curiosity.
