Whenever we first encounter a new place, whether landscape or cityscape, one of the most immediate and powerful sensations comes from its colors, or the palette of colors, which profoundly influence our reaction to and sense of a space. In Local Color, designer and educator Mimi Robinson teaches us not only how to see the colors around us but also how to capture and record them in watercolor. Regardless of your level of expertise, Robinson will quickly have you creating personal memories of time, travel, and place through a series of self-guided exercises and illustrated examples.
  • This instructional book includes everything you need to sharpen your powers of observation, develop your color senses, and create beautiful palettes of local color
  • In an age of constant visual bombardment, this Zen-like process of color observation allows you to slow down and become fully absorbed in the present moment


Mimi Robinson is an international design consultant and principal of Mimi Robinson Design. She is the founder of Bridging Cultures Through Design and an adjunct professor at California College of the Arts.
