- Feb 10, 2008Something my arts and crafts has given me is a love for Colour - all sorts
of colors. So as a birthday present I was given the Victoria Finlay book
"Colour" and I'm loving it.
I'm only into the first 20 pages and there's already stories about how the
putting of paint into tubes was a technical achievement that resulted in the
Impressionist painters having the freedom to paint their impressions of
nature in nature.
It got me thinking of how something that we take as being so very simple and
everyday was once so revolutionary for the art and then crafts that is
created a whole new way of perceiving not only landscapes but color, shaped,
design and even social structures. I think that's amazing!
I only knew about "Colour" because I'd read and loved "Jewels, A Secret
History" - a book about gem stones that I really recommend too.
Do enjoy and dive into colour!
All the best,
