I am preparing a pair of books on color vision (Color Experience) and watercolor methods (Painting Practice). This page will post draft chapters from each book (including illustrations, in PDF format) as they are finished. The PDF icons indicate the filesize of the downloads.

Reader comments, suggestions and corrections welcomed: please email to drollere•at•fastmail.com .

Note: I do not accept or respond to emails sent from the gmail domain, in protest of the Alphabet Corporation's impudent, pervasive and exploitative practices of data harvesting, privacy violation and monopolistic market control.
