Re: Enjoyable read for Oil Painters - Color for Painters
My favorite is Color Exercises for the Painter by Lucia Salamme. Very little text, mostly exercises to learn the principles of color application. Designed around oil, but works well with any opaque media.
Many of the examples are quite abstract and expressionist based, but the principles apply across the board. The teacher taught my father, used it and taught flemish style painting.
There is a good one Color for Oil Painters (or something like that) by DeValentin that is good too, but hard to find.
