Work from life to learn color. Gurneys book will help but isn't a substitute for life studies. Arthur Wesley Dow's book composition is a great book too and will teach you the basic concepts behind...
James Gurney's color and light book is the best resource I've found for color, composition however I haven't delved into as much. I think it was Jason Manley that made a huge video all about...
