Basic Colour: a Practical Handbook Published by A & C Black for the Herbert Press)
Basic Colour is an indispensable guide to colour mixing and colour theory. It is a practical resource and a permanent reference.
Logical, easy-to-follow diagrams - tonal charts, complementary scales, colour-wheel exercises and colour tricks – will help students, artists and designers to understand and appreciate colour and its relationships and thereby expand readers' colour vocabulary.
