About the suggested projects:

Bring on the color!  This off-kilter yet exhilarating book is all about the color spectrum and the question of how we perceive color.  Play in whatever medium you’d like with colors, black, white, and grey/gray.  Charcoal, oil pastels, paint – anything that allows you to vary shades by tiny degrees.  Gradients can be especially interesting to explore.  Oh, and spoons.  Have fun!
