This fine book covers color theory for beginners. Sidaway (The Instant Artist) offers brief sections on the science of color, theory, and pigments, plus numerous color-mixing charts in oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, soft pastels, pencils, and inks. Stephen Quiller's book Color Choices: Making Color Sense Out of Color Theory, originally published in cloth in 1989 and now out in paperback, is for the advanced artist who wants to experiment with glazing methods or study the color theory of Rembrandt, Turner, Vermeer, Hopper, O'Keeffe, and John Henry Twachtman. This inspiring, creative approach to color could well be supplemented by David Pyle's What Every Artist Needs To Know About Paints & Colors, which covers vital health and safety issues and the use of color in computer graphics.
