Many who take up painting and crafts quickly become discouraged because they find it difficult or at best, tricky, to consistently put together colors in pleasing ways. They worry that they lack an eye for color when in fact they simply were never taught how color schemes work. Once they know, they can create color harmony in any project with excellent results. This straightforward guide will show and tell them everything they need to know whether it is for painting, or for crafts, needlework, home decorating, or fashion.

About the Author:

Color expert and professional artist Dan Bartges has lectured on color at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D. C., the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and many other venues. His paintings have been acquired by Fortune 500 companies and private collectors throughout the United States.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School—This accessible book offers the equivalent of an introduction to both color theory and art appreciation worthy of a high school or community college course. Bartges provides clear explanations—well illustrated with both color wheels and famous paintings—of how color schemes work and how to achieve color balance in one's own paintings. His choice of emblematic works to deconstruct are better varied than in traditional textbooks, offering works by women, self-taught painters, and people of color as well as the expected Picasso, Sargent, and Degas. Exercises include images teens will appreciate, such as a slice of blueberry pie that looks truly mouthwatering. Although there are write-in spaces for some of the exercises, these are few and the volume is not a workbook. The small bibliography suggests texts librarians will recognize as standards but may lead novice teen artists to them for the first time. A final section called "Ten Quick Tips from the Studio" provides real gems that even first-time painters can appreciate.—Francisca Goldsmith, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia
