100% of people buy Color and The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain ~ Paperback / softback ~ Betty Edwards.


Millions of people have learned to draw using the methods of Dr. Betty Edwards's bestseller The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Now much as artists progress from drawing to painting Edwards moves from black-and-white into colour. Using techniques tested and honed in her five-day intensive colour workshops Edwards provides a basic understanding of how to see colour how to use it and - for those involved in art painting or design - how to mix and combine hues. Including more than 125 colour images and exercises that move from simple to challenging this volume explains how to: * see what is really there rather than what you know in your mind about coloured objects * perceive how light affects colour and how colours affect one another * manipulate hue value and intensity of colour and transform colours into their opposites * balance colour in still-life landscape figure and portrait painting * understand the psychology of colour * harmonize colour in your surroundings While we recognize and treasure the beautiful use of colour reproducing what we see can be a challenge. Accessibly un-weaving colour's complexity this must-have primer is destined to be an instant classic.
