Hi guys. could anyone tell me some good books that would improve my grasp on colour in decoration? It's a sadly lacking skill in most painters and something we could all work on.
cheers.

Here is a video that I produced as a starting point.

Is there any particular aspect of colour theory you are after?

  • Colour harmonies
  • Colour matching
  • Munsell Sysrem
  • Shade, tint, tone and value
  • Hue
  • Chroma

Try and test your existing knowledge with this test I made: Colour Test

My profession is training painting & decorating, I am more then happy to help out where I can.


I have embedded some videos from PQI on my site as well - http://www.pacificpainters.com/index.php?p=1_10_Match-Specified-Paint-Colour

Man, I did not notice the date....

Holy crap, how did that happen?

I am blaming:

  • CoachDave
  • Gibberish45
  • One Coat Coverage
  • ProWallGuy

I suppose I should accept some of the blame as well. ;)
