Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an artist, I have a hard time seeing the applicability of a book on color n art without a single color chart.The information it provides is probably , almost certainly correct, but my visualization skills are just not as good as that. No one promised me a color chart, but I am still amazed thayt there is not one.
