Things you might consider looking at… 3/24/10


Every so often I come across something that I feel is worth recommending.

http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/wcolor.html
This is by far the most extensive and accessible collection of information on color and perception that I have ever seen. If they ever make a book out of it, this would be a book everyone should read at least once.


http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/water.html

Is the master site and contains an incredible amount of information equally well presented on painting and palettes and watercolor. It's all just an unbelievably spectacular resource.

If nothing else, read the pages on color theory, tones and temperature here: http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color18a.html and here http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color18b.html and here http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color11.html and here http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color12.html
