Throughout his visually diverse career Adam has focused on the power of colour in his work. He has compiled this colour theory reference book for artists of every skill level, discipline and background. It contains a range of subject matter providing simple sets of methodologies for its application. You will be introduced to colour from the ground up, explaining each step and colour process along the way, from light, colour wheels and colour schemes to colour science and colour perception.

Every artist can expand their skill set by learning new ways to understand colour. It is only by learning and developing our visual vocabulary that we can continue to see the world differently each and every day.

Colour is like cooking, in that the wrong ingredient can spoil the whole meal.
