  • “The clear, well-explained text leads you through a series of exercises and techniques. The beginner will enjoy the discovery of colour. Teachers and therapists will value this resource with its sparkling insights.” —Anna Hubbard, Arts Foundation Course Tutor

This workbook is based on Goethe's and Rudolf Steiner's color research. Angela Lord invites readers to develop their own color insights through materials and techniques; exploration of colors; painting rainbows; color clashes; complementary colors; after-images; painting the color circle and complementary colors; enhancing colors; a new color circle; the interplay of light and dark, and sunrise and sunset; color dynamics; and composition, an overview of color through history; watercolor painting and the Steiner Waldorf curriculum. Also included is a section of resources, a glossary, and references.

The clear, well-explained texts lead readers through a series of experiments, exercises, and techniques. Beginners will enjoy the discovery of color, while teachers and therapists will value this resource and its sparkling insights.
