Art students and artists will be familiar with the conventional theories of colour mixing and may well have been disappointed when putting these theories into practice. In The Colour Book, David Lloyd explains why this dissonance occurs. Using a series of step-by-step exercises, he shows the reader how to look at colour relationships in a new way that closes the gap between theory and successful practice.

Topics covered: Shows where problems occur in colour mixing Provides a fresh look at the key terms and concepts artists need to understand colour Exposes the inadequacies of the traditional distinction between 'primary' and 'secondary' colours Shows how the traditional colour wheel can be enhanced to provide a genuinely effective colour mixing tool

" A fascinating book, full of challenging ideas. I would really enjoy to be able to discuss the contents of the book with it's author - I have reached the bit about complementary colours, and I am in the process of trying to construct my own 'enhanced colour wheel', using the 17 hues which I have identified from my 48 hue collection as being 'sequential' through the spectrum.
