Intuitive Color & Design - Book Review

There are many different ways in which I like to spend a sunny afternoon, one of them is to sit with a cup of tea and read through a new book.
 Reading through Jean Wells’ Intuitive Color & Design is an adventure in itself. Jean shows you how to open your eyes to see the multiple colours and shapes that surround us. You will learn to start your journal with confidence, explore colour families and related harmony to make the quilt design dance.
You are inspired and provoked to see what actually attracts you to certain shapes, sizes and colours. Jean guides you through her assignments to convert your ideas into the finished art piece. She offers 11 assignments, starting with a journal, what tools you need, and shows you how to paper piece.
Jean also goes into great details of the principles of design and scale, shape, patterns and colours.
Every page has either inspiring landscape images, close up design photos and drawings to show you ‘How’ it all comes together.
This book is an inspiration to me and I can recommend it to anyone who would like to broaden their horizon and develop their own artistic potential.

Colour the World with your creativity
