2.5 Look and Collect
In this chapter, we expanded the idea of looking into one of collecting. Not only are you going around looking at many different examples of textures and surfaces, now you are collecting them into one place in a variety of different forms so they are at your fingertips when you need them.
I would like to round out your artistic knowledge with the theory of color. Color is one of the first things you notice about a surface, and I briefly wrote about recognition of color in shadows, and so on. The theory of color expands your knowledge from a visual aspect of art to a perceived aspect of art. When you encounter a color, in other words, it is not on a purely visual level; there are many other components attached to color that I would like to explore, and Chapter 3, "Color Theory," is about just that. There you will get acquainted or reacquaint yourself with colors and color theory.
