Color, Third Edition

A workshop for artists and designers

David Hornung


Taking a practical approach to color, Color: A workshop for artists and designers is an invaluable resource for art students and professionals alike. With its sequence of specially designed assignments and in-depth discussions, it effectively bridges the gap between color theory and practice to inspire confidence and understanding in anyone working with color. This third edition is updated with more contemporary examples drawn not just from painting, but from textiles, graphic design, illustration, and animation. An expanded discussion of digital techniques, new assignments, and a refreshed design have all been brought together to create a highly readable and relevant text.

David Hornung is Professor of Art at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. He has exhibited his paintings in many solo and group exhibitions in the US and UK.
