Powercolor is a fascinating survey of colour, and an invaluable resource for artists who want to expand their knowledge about colour, and invigorate their use of colour. Colour is an essential element in visual art that affects the perception, interpretation, and compositional success of images. Unfortunately, the jargon of colour theory and the unpredictability of mixing manufactured colours prevent many artists from using colour to maximum advantage in their work. Powercolor discusses colour theories, applications, and associations, and even illustrates ideas by offering instructive examples and demonstrations. Author and artist Caroline Jasper examines the following: Physiology: what colour is and how it has been explained by scientists; Theory: the colour wheel, and alternative colour systems like triangles and spheres; History: how artists throughout history have used colour; Physics: various types of colour contrast (temperature, intensity, value); Chemistry: how a medium's physical characteristics affect the use and appearance of colour; Contemporary Color Practice: how colour can be used effectively in a variety of theories, methods of application, and mediums.
