Overview

This new text connects color theory with its practical application in two-dimensional visual disciplines—graphic design, illustration, painting, textile art, and textile design. Fundamental color concepts are explored in a series of sixteen painted studies that guide students through a variety of color experiences. The lesson sequence moves logically from basic structural concepts, through experiments with color applications, to scenarios that facilitate color unity and expression.
