Colour Is Energy!
Beginning with light, then hunting for rainbows, this book reveals step-by-step what colour really is. Hands-on exercises teach you the techniques professional Artists use to work with colour.
In this series, David & Ping Henningham reinvent the traditional Elements of Art: the building blocks for all budding Future Artists!
We are David & Ping Henningham and we really are grown-up Artists. That’s how we pay for our cornflakes.
We learned to use colour at Central St. Martins School of Art, a course based on the Bauhaus Design and Form syllabus, including the colour theories of Itten and Albers. David went on to study BA and MA Fine Art at Chelsea and the Slade. Ping studied History of Art at UCL and Modernist Literature at Queen Mary University of London.
We have run Henningham Family Press since 2006. Our Art is collected by museums you might have visited, like the V&A, Tate, the National Poetry Library and National Galleries Scotland.
