    color?!?!

    people are always talking about colour. "well, you need to practice color", "you need to study how color works", "wow, awesome colors in this piece" etc.
    what do they mean by that? im pretty sure my colors suck, so please tell me what i should study in order to learn "color" and what i have to pay attention to. thanks,
    jatherip

    That's a big topic. I presume you know the colour wheel? Shadows are normally complimentary. Some colours are dominant while others are recessive. How to mix them to get that exact colour required. What colour you put next to another will change it.

    I'm sure some kindly person will give you a few links.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hurry up and get Jason's colour theory class here on CA. It will be streaming until the 25th.

    It is really great and worth all $95!
