Art people of Mastodon: any recommendations for books or other resources on learning color theory? Boosts extremely welcome
not saying you need to buy it, there are... means... of getting a copy for free, but james gurney is a master
@checkervest if you can get ahold of a copy of this as a supplemental thing — because it is old and dated etc —, ‘color problems’ by emily noyes vanderpoel is my fav
@checkervest @mood Found it! https://archive.org/download/cu31924008632964/cu31924008632964.pdf
Thanks for the recommendation!
@checkervest i've got a book by Josef Albers called "Interaction of Color" that I quite like. Might not be the best, but I like it :)
thank you for the share!
@checkervest I’ve got these three books for textile art. Some of the concepts in them will transfer to other kinds of art.
@checkervest James Gurney's "Color and Light" is very good https://jamesgurney.com/products/color-and-light-a-guide-for-the-realist-painter-signed-by-james-gurney (his long-running blog is delightful!)
@checkervest I have a practical book filled with swatches, but it does not have any theory. https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/color-index-over-1100-color-combinations-cmyk-and-rgb-formulas-for-print-and-web-media_jim-krause/273986/?resultid=9193d672-0ec5-4e37-b154-a0b6c08130ad#edition=5414337&idiq=7778690
