One of the greatest gifts of sight is our ability to distinguish colors. The human eye can distinguish around 10,000,000 colors.

There are so many choices, so many variations of paint colors and formulas. Do we use viridian green or pthalo green? Opaque or transparent? What about limited or extensive palettes? How do we learn to observe color? With a plethora of combinations, it is wise to break our studies into small manageable portions.We will first learn some of the terminology of the color language, followed by simple color exercises,and graduating to more complex observations.
