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

  1. 3

    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.

    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
