Schroff delves into the mysteries of color, light, and darkness from artistic, scientific and esoteric perspectives. With a detailed “how to” section on the specifics of the Collot watercolor technique, this is nevertheless a book not only for painters, but for everyone interested in color. This edition of the book is expanded by new material based on the author’s recent years of teaching and study and by color illustrations of paintings by both Collot d’Herbois and Schroff. An extensive bibliography encourages further research.
