All the more so as this notion is part of a cultural context, with psychological, sociological, political and religious implications. The aim of this book is to demystify the phenomenon of colour and make it accessible to artists, illustrators, graphic designers and anyone who has to manipulate colour to create images and objects. It explains the fundamental theoretical notions, and favours an experimental approach that is both pragmatic and logical. Colour: A Practical Course is designed as a workshop. The reader is invited to discover the main principles of colour, then to apply them through the numerous exercises proposed. The experience gained in this way provides a solid basis for artistic and professional activity. Clear and pedagogical, this resolutely practical manual is aimed at both the neophyte seeking to learn by himself and artists and teachers running workshops, who will find it a valuable source of exercises.
