A Book About Color: A Clear and Simple Guide for Young Artists

Fun and simple, Mark Gonyea‘s book covers primary, complementary and analogous colours, as well as saturation, value and the colour wheel. There are six short chapters with only a few sentences per page and all pages are brightly illustrated.

Chapter Two shows the moods various colours invoke and Chapter Six discusses black and white:  White is pure. White is clean. Black is mysterious. Black is sophisticated. Illustrations on these pages include snow and a tuxedo.

A Book About Color will fit well on your nonfiction shelf.
