Book Review! Color Scheme Bible - Anna Starmen

THE COLOR SCHEME BIBLE- Inspirational plettes for designing home interiors.  Anna Starmen  

I LOVE this book and often use it for color inspirations.  It is not a visual artists book per se but rather intended for interior designers.  Do not let that deter you from buying this little handy gem.  It has loads of color combos that work in fabulous exciting ways to punch up your paintings and other art projects.  I have been using it a LOT lately in my mixed media portrait paintings and metal work prisma color pendants. 

Here are some images from the book so you can see how the color schemes are formatted.

Some of my prisma color designs waiting to be made into new pendants - so much fun to do and based on some of the inspirational color schemes in the "Bible".

Don't forget to follow my blog for a chance to win a pair of my Gritty Industrial Earrings - I am drawing names from my blog followers and my Facebook Page, if you are on both you will have 2x the chance of winning.
