In Living Color

Ogden Rood (1831-1902), an American physicist and artist, wrote about color theory and introduced the term "hue". Hue is the basic term of a color - whether it is blue, green or red ... Neo-impressionist painters (such as George Seurat) benefited from his writings. Others have studied and written about color, saturation, color wavelengths, hue, perception, etc. I could read Modern Chromatics (1879) by Rood - but no. Today, I am going to study color via my new book "HUE", by Kelly Wearstler. Is this lazy? No, it's studying the practical application of color theory.
