    I am wondering if any of you have used, either in classes or for personal use books on color?

    I am not interested in deep, technical books. I would like a book(s) that will help me with the relationships of color.

    Thanks

    All you need is a color wheel.

    As an example and/or to give you some search terms:

    Color Relationships

    A color wheel was one of my assignments in Design class. It was a very useful assignment. Paint one yourself and you'll never have a problem with colors again. Guaranteed.

    And if you're lucky, the same thing could happen to you that did to me. Someone visiting my studio saw my color wheel, thought it was the coolest painting and had to have it...

    Yes, I did sell it. Lol.

    I did google, and got so many hits, I decided to post here.

    I just spent hours sifting through the pages.
    Thanks for the link

    Funny: there are not too many books in photography that deal with a lot of color theory. It seems a lot of them taking glancing blows at it.
