Color Choices by Stephan Quiller
The subtitle on this book is "Making Color Sense Out Of Color Theory".It looks like an excellent book.
On the back cover is a painting of the author's , in this piece he demonstrates what can be done using the Triadic Color Scheme.
The book is bases on something the author calls the *Quiller Wheel*. It is his precise guide to planning Harmonious color relationships.
The book also has a large full color fold out of the Quiller Wheel.
This appears to be a fascinating book about how to best use color. This is a subject that fascinates me.
The chapters are:
What Is a Color Wheel
My Color Wheel Specifically
Locating Colors on the Outside of the Quiller Wheel
Locating Color on the Inside of the Quiller Wheel
The next few chapters are fro painters on color mixing etc. Then:
Monochromatic and Complimentary Color Schemes
Analogus and Split-Complementary Color Schemes
The Split-Complementart Color Scheme
Tradic Color Schemes
Going Beyond Structured Color
The next few chapters are, again, for painters then at the end of the book is a gallery of paintings by artists he considers *Master Colorists* There are 23 pages of them.
The last chapter is Historical Perspective on Color Theory
I am impressed. Needless to say, all the pictures are full color. Color Choices is a beautifully done large glossy paperbound book. First published in 1989 by Watson-Guptill Publications in New York.
The book has 144 pages and a full index.
