Well written, explained and researched, this is a gem for those who love color, or who want to understand and use it" Patrick Mooney, The National College of Art and Design "This excellent book is based on practical exercises that focus on relative experimentation with color in order to teach specific qualities and functions of color. It is clear, direct, and exciting" Nicholas Ruth, Hobart and William Smith Colleges "A very accessible way for students to get to grips with the fundamentals of color theory and history: hue, saturation, harmony, perception and digital color mixing" David Tinn, East Surrey College In David Hornung's book Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, you will find all you need to know about color theory and its application.
