You may recognize the smoosh in the video below. This is the source and inspiration for all the content at colorisrelative.com. Dick Nelson who created this video and more at his vimeo channel studied with Josef Albers in the 1950′s. We are fortunate now that he is posting educational videos that illuminate our color sense.


The grammar of color is crucial! As crucial as grammar in lanuage. How can you understand the visual language if you don’t have the grammar.

This is Dick Nelson’s second video release from his DVD, “The Dimension of Color” covering in 3D: Tinting, Toning, Shading… Full Chroma… Complementary colors… Primary pigments, Secondary pigments and more.
