Exploring Color Coloring Book is a hands-on workbook based on Nita Leland's best-selling book, Exploring Color. Printed on 140# acid-free watercolor paper, the book contains more than forty blank color theory charts, with extra pages for sketching. Users fill in the charts with their choice of medium in the recommended colors or the colors they already have, following instructions on each page. The result is a useful color- reference book in a handy, take-along size (8 1/2" x 11") for students and outdoor painters. The workbook can be used by beginners, as well as teachers and professional artists, by adapting the instructions to almost any medium: acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels, colored pencils, fibers and collage materials. (Exploring Color, the original text, is helpful, but not required to do the charts.)

Exploring Color Coloring Book bridges the gap between reading about color theory and hands-on experience with the colors artists use on a daily basis in their artwork. Printed color charts found in art materials stores lack the intensity of actual paints, and for artists who work in media such as fibers and collage there is no easy way to record colors and their different combinations for future reference. With Exploring Color Coloring Book you use the actual paints or materials of your art or craft to create the charts, giving you an accurate record of how your colors look and work together. When you understand how color theory acts in your own medium, you can use color more creatively and expressively.
The charts in the coloring book are nearly all the same ones I've taught students to make in my color workshops since 1980, but instead of requiring measuring and taping to create the charts, they are now printed out in an easy-to-use format on 140# acid-free watercolor paper. Even non-artists have told me they find the instructions easy to understand and the exercises "make sense" of the mysteries of color theory. The coloring book follows the sequence of exercises in Exploring Color Revised Edition, but you don't need the book to use the coloring book unless you want more detailed information about the subjects under consideration. Both books are excellent teaching tools, as well as learning aids, and have been used successfully by teachers at all age and grade levels and by artists in nearly every medium at all skill levels.From the Back Cover:
