Here is one of the best introductions for painters and anyone interested in a deeper understanding of the nature of color. The book highlights the amazing depth of knowing that lies behind the beautiful paintings of watercolorist Liane Collot d'Herbois, whose application of the color theories of Rudolf Steiner and Goethe, together with her overall understanding of anthroposophical principles, are very much in evidence in her paintings.

Schroff delves into the mysteries of color, light, and darkness from artistic, scientific, and esoteric perspectives. With a detailed how-to section on the specifics of the Collot watercolor technique, this edition, expanded from her earlier book, contains illustrations in color of paintings by both Collot and Schroff, as well as an extensive bibliography to encourage further research.

Topics discussed include:

• Soul and Spirit
• Light, Color, and Darkness
• Philosophy and the Painter's Art
• Laws of Color
• Atmosphere and the Movement of Color
• Prism Exercises
• Rainbows, Refractions, and Reversals
• Intervals and After-Images
• Collot Painting Therapy
• Meditations
