This blog presents several sources to develop your sense of colour.
In the category « They love color », a series of portraits of women loving colour; they use it in their profession, they wear it, they study it or teach it, …. no matter: colour is part of their life! Through interviews and photos, I try to identify their world and bring their point of view on colour.
I love colour too! As a child, I used to classify the coloured pencils of my older sister, already a talented artist. At 12, I was putting coloured silk papers on my desk lamp; I admired and watched my environment so enlightened. Since then, I have been searching for the pleasure of the eyes and the mind in the visual arts and sciences. Here and there, I share with you this research.
And what about them?
No sectarianism! Men also love colour, in the category « They inspire me », I dedicate other forms of articles to them: imaginary dialogues, reports of exhibitions, comments on conferences, etc.
There are many books about colour, but they rarely agree! I propose abstracts and a review in the category « I read for you »; you will have clues about the need for further reading.
Watching can be learned! In the category « Learn to watch », I propose analyses of selected graphic works.
For reasons of copyright, the figures and images to which I refer can not appear in the blog, so I sketch them and, if possible, I associate with the title an authorized internet source you can access by a simple click. Except written explicitly, I am the author of all the pictures, figures and drawings.
You who love color, let yourself be inspired by this blog! Feel free to give me a feedback on these articles. Send me the topics and questions related to color that interest you.
