We will unveil the mystery of how to employ color harmoniously in an art form. As we gain basic knowledge, we begin to understand the use of color in composition and design. We discover why certain hues and palettes work and which color combinations to avoid. A lecture and video about the Munsell Color System, a major development in the history of color theory based on three main factors (hue, value, and chroma) and Isaac Newton, who created the first "Color Circle," will be discussed. We'll look at the work of Renoir, Miro, Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso, Pieter Bruegel, Claude Monet, and other contemporary artists who worked with color.
