Where do you learn about color theory?

Any color experts out there who can point me to some resources? So far I've used my best judgement as to what colors I think look good, but it would be nice to get some technical background as well

    From my mistakes and other famous pieces of work.

    (and a few other youtube tutorials 🙃)

  2. 2

    I'd recommend Interaction of color by Josef Albers. Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse have always inspried me. I've never had much luck with things link Adobe Color

    I usally find an image I like - then pull out the invidual colours that work, don't underestimate how hard colours are to get right.

    I just wrote a blog article on processing color systems if you are looking to understand the difference between digital and print colors like Pantone, CMYK, RGB and more.

  4. 2

    I'm no expert but have found that coolers (https://coolors.co/) is a great tool for picking palettes (either from scratch or with a few starter colors selected)

    One of the resources that's helped me out the most

    He also has great resources.
