Books that teach you how to master color.
The first color theory book I read was by Johannes Itten. It
was a college required reading. I would not recommend it for a novice,
but after exploring color for a while, it can be indispensible.
The Elements of Color
This is an excellent book for the intermediate painter
striving to master clean and glowing color with
transparent watercolor pigments.
Penny Soto's work has appeared in The Artist Magazine
and Air Brush Action, and she is an accomplished painter
in Contemporary Painting
This book is touted as a great reference book not only
for the intermediate painter but for the advanced
painter looking to expand his or her horizons in the use
of color choices in their paintings. Not
recommend for the beginner.
