Millions of people have learned to draw using the methods of Dr. Betty Edwards's bestseller The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Now, much as artists progress from drawing to painting, Edwards moves from black-and-white into color. This new guide distills the enormous existing knowledge about color theory into a practical method of working with color to produce harmonious combinations.

Using techniques tested and honed in her five-day intensive color workshops, Edwards provides a basic understanding of how to see color, how to use it, and-for those involved in art, painting, or design-how to mix and combine hues. Including more than 125 color images and exercises that move from simple to challenging, this volume explains how to:

- see what is really there rather than what you "know" in your mind about colored objects
- perceive how light affects color, and how colors affect one another
- manipulate hue, value, and intensity of color and transform colors into their opposites
- balance color in still-life, landscape, figure, and portrait painting
- understand the psychology of color
- harmonize color in your surroundings

While we recognize and treasure the beautiful use of color, reproducing what we see can be a challenge. Accessibly unweaving color's complexity, this must-have primer is destined to be an instant classic.

    【色彩學】


    對色彩,我是有濃厚的興趣的。
    當自己能觸及時,在我看來就是一種情感以外的延伸,甚至有溫度。
    我喜歡藝術家用顏色調和成自己想要的世界,是慘淡或暗黑,哪怕白皚皚的冰雪世界仍然是壯麗而無邊的想像。
    眼前的荒蕪,墜落至深深深的極處,總有生命的源頭迸現而出,光芒耀眼,光彩奪目。

    顏色是視覺的,再遠都是美的,這又陷入詭異的感覺,必然是盡頭。
    藝術家的眼光,總是明察秋毫,沒有描繪不出來的事情,具體而微,如探囊取物般。
    思考之中還能挪出空檔,將空間與形狀整個穿透,掌握不費功夫,彈指間即成,無須旁 ...(continue)


    對色彩,我是有濃厚的興趣的。
    當自己能觸及時,在我看來就是一種情感以外的延伸,甚至有溫度。
    我喜歡藝術家用顏色調和成自己想要的世界,是慘淡或暗黑,哪怕白皚皚的冰雪世界仍然是壯麗而無邊的想像。
    眼前的荒蕪,墜落至深深深的極處,總有生命的源頭迸現而出,光芒耀眼,光彩奪目。

    顏色是視覺的,再遠都是美的,這又陷入詭異的感覺,必然是盡頭。
    藝術家的眼光,總是明察秋毫,沒有描繪不出來的事情,具體而微,如探囊取物般。
    思考之中還能挪出空檔,將空間與形狀整個穿透,掌握不費功夫,彈指間即成,無須旁人插手。

    「看」是習畫者最深的功夫,沒有這等能耐,便不能充分使用色彩多變的特性,
    這才能看出變化之中的真實面貌。
    慢慢的,在眼裡幻化成精,迎上來的 血肉相連之於魂魄深處,附著一個黑點,是精魄。

    一代過去一代,混濁的空氣裡佈滿了,光線插著旗幟,走在我自己的彩雲之上,波濤洶湧,
    直到破雲而出,那是光與暗的交界--是戰場,也是瑰麗的一章。

    沒有任何的妥協,也因為這樣,沒有天高地厚的沉默--落在這裡,我退了又退,再無可退。
    一「筆」劫毀。
    所幸…借光一用,事緩則圓。

    對於水彩或繪畫有興趣的人,這是一本教你如何學習的實用書籍,我個人認為應該很能夠按圖索驥作出不錯的成果,這位作者在美術教育的觀念改革方面頗具好評,這本書是系列作之一。

    其實是借錯了,我應該先借同一作家的另一本書「像藝術家一樣思考」,為我的素描課作準備,兼補充相關知識用,這本就當作以後有機會畫水彩時的參考書了。

    不同於一般色彩的書,適合初學者閱讀,如果能跟隨書中範例練習,相信會有令人意外的感受。
