A practical and informative book that will to help you understand colour, colour schemes and most of all to help you discover what it is you like about colour.
This book isn’t about what’s right or wrong, according to a set of theoretic rules.

by doing the activities in this book, not just reading about them, you will improve your understanding of colour by 70%. in addition to this book, we have created The Colour Workbook, with black line masters for all the activities included. You will be able to create copies of these to complete each of the exercises. It is recommended that these be copied onto paper that has a weight of around 110gsm to 130gsm to allow it to be painted on without buckling.
This book has been written using Matisse Structure and Flow Formula acrylic paints from Derivan Pty Ltd. We have chosen this brand because of their extremely high quality and brilliant colours. You will however, be able to use other brands – and you’ll find this book useful anywhere you’re thinking about colour.
