Adding to cart… The item has been added


In this follow-up to her popular workbook Colour Dynamics, Angela Lord invites readers to further deepen and extend their colour insights and ways of seeing.

Colour Dynamics II is based on the ‘world alphabet’ of Aristotle’s categories, extended by Rudolf Steiner. Angela Lord offers a vivid approach to colour theory that will renew the way you see, experience and interpret the formative forces of colour, and to paint from the heart of each colour.

This is a useful resource for art students, painters, teachers, art therapists and interior designers. It enlivens Aristotle’s invitation to ‘delight in the senses’, by a renewed aesthetics that refreshes the soul as a counter to the digital, virtual, screen world.
