I have been a professor for 15 years. «The Elements of Color"» has been required reading for many of my courses. It is not only enriching as a color theory document, but it helps expand the artist or designers possibility of using, arranging and conceiving color.
Itten's analysis and application of color is thoughtful and scientific. As a practicing art director, I have successfully used the theories and methods explained in «Elements of Color» for over twenty years. I also teach them to my design classes. Whether you use a paintbrush or a mouse, his «seven color contrasts» will prove invaluable.
I took an art course to learn about colour and learnt nothing. Then I read this book...It answered all my questions and informed me about areas of colour theory I had never dreampt of. Now I paint with knowledge and confidence.
