Join Jim Krause for an in-depth discussion in this video Closing thoughts, part of Color for Design and Art.
- All right, we've learned about the color wheel,…prioritizing value, making good looking palettes,…CMYK and RGB colors, and colors of paint.…Where to go next?…First of all, keep learning.…Practice what you've discovered here…and constantly look for new choices…and new roles for both the starring…and supporting colors of your palettes.…Next, take charge, I mean, always be willing…to second guess your computer's color ideas.…Better yet, build your palettes from scratch.…That's what I do, and it definitely…keeps my head in the color game.…
And last, open your eyes wide to how great designers…and great artists use color.…Look at books, websites, magazines,…and visit those art galleries.…There are endless ideas and inspiration in all those places.…So thank you for taking a look at this course,…and best of luck choosing and applying colors…to all your works of design and art.…
Primarily aimed at designers and illustrators, the course leans heavily toward digital tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator, but concludes with some challenges using real-world media (inks and paints!), so members can get a solid understanding of mixing colors and what tools and combinations work best.
