Part II –Circle of Friends and Art Vocabulary

There are knowledge and techniques learned through other artistic paths that, if studied, can help one to improve one’s creative expressions and find one’s unique way of expressing one’s style.

Color theory is an area I consider to be one of the most important areas for artists of all types to study. Many people have commented on my good color sense. But it wasn’t an innate talent. I developed my color sense by studying many different books on color theory. There are a lot of great books out there. Having the confidence to look at a focal piece and then select a color palette that will enhance that focal piece is a great feeling. Many watercolor books include a section on color theory and each artist has a slightly different palettes and mixes. Some of the books I’ve studied that relate more specifically to color in beads are Margaret Deeb’s books entitled The Beader’s Color Pallette and The Beaders Guide to Color.
