Ah Michelle,
I've seen your work. Your use of color is quite exciting.Based on that alone, I will certainly seek out the book. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

For anyone interested in exploring color - a book to suggest is "Interaction of Color" by Joseph Albers - He is the most influential teacher-artist of the 20th century. In his book is a series of practical lessons exploring color in many thought provoking ways. Bringing to the forefront, that color changes due to the environment it is viewed in! After taking a course dedicated to his lessons, it opened a whole new color world to me - my paintings were no longer muddy! It also was the catalyst to the style I've developed. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Hi Michelle!
I find very interesting your reccomandation.
so I went to amazon.co.uk (for me it's better to buy in europe) but from the review it seems to be more related to computer color theory instead to painting. On amazon.com it seems for painters: what can you tell me about? I just paint with watercolors, do you think it is useful for me? (I like very much studying colors characteristics, maybe you have seen my posts).
http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif thank you and ciao, rapolina.
