There are many different books on color. I wanted to share my two favorite ones here. Perhaps they will inspire you.
Through her travels across Afghanistan, Indonesia, China, and Australia she discovered and pieced together the origins of color. Victoria takes you on an adventure from the beginning to the end.
You will walk away from this book with a new appreciation for color, its cultural and political connections, and understand the meanings behind human connection with color
In this book, Ian explores oils, pastels, colored pencil, ink, gouache, and acrylics. He also gives a brief history of the pigments.
I recommend this book to my students of all levels. I encourage them to not only explore what this book has to offer, but to create their own version in the mediums they like to work in. There is no better way to understand color than to play with and manipulate it and most importantly practice.
