Top Customer Reviews
I highly recommend this book if you either are or an aspiring artist, sewer, photographer, or anything in the arts.
She explains a lot about color, and the relationship colors have, including additive, subtractive, and about the color wheels.
Worthwhile book to have.
Betty Edwards writes clearly, obviously loves her subject and is accustomed to imparting information to students at all levels.
Furthermore, the font size in this book is great and easy to read, particularly for mature aged artists.
I would recommend this book as a must for all artists from beginners to those more experienced who have, like me, struggle to master the nuances of getting the correct value in colour.
Some of what she discusses is in the earlier books but this is certainly extended much further in this volume and it is comfortable reading. Luckily, she has largely omitted her discussions of left/right brain theory, making this book more accessible to readers unfamiliar with or hostile to her view.
I am also sure that some 'real' artists, or artists of the more romantic bent will rail against her presenting color theory in this way. I believe that it is true that it is better to rebel once you have learned at least one formal system. Her approach is probably most helpful to those of us intimidated by art classes and artists but who want to learn to express ourselves visually and extend this area of our capacity.
