Color brings life and excitement to our fiber work, yet many feel uncertain about how to approach color. The human eye is capable of discerning over three million distinct colors, yet most of us have untrained eyes. Learn about color from an artist’s perspective and begin a journey of enhanced perception. Laura presents color effects in tangible visual terms that illustrate why color combinations work or do not work. A few key concepts will help guide you in future selections of color. You will achieve a deeper understanding of color and perception, and Laura promises you will never look at color in the same way again. You will leave understanding Laura’s favorite axiom: You don’t get WOW by doing the expected!
