From the Author: "This book has been completely rewritten and reorganized and displays the work of 64 outstanding contemporary artists in all the leading art media. There are five new step-by-step demos, a glossary and a bibliography. Contents include the history, science and theories of color, the properties of color, color characteristics, color mixtures, compatible colors, color schemes, color contrast, light and shadow, and color design. The color reproductions are dazzling. Everything I could think of that would make a practical guide to color for artists is in this book."
