Nature's colors are so wonderful and diverse they inspired people to use the names of plants, animals, and minerals when labelling all the nuances. Join us on a journey to discover the twelve most well-known colors and their shades. You will learn that the colors and elements you find in nature are often closely connected. Will you be able to find all the links in each chapter? And if you are an aspiring artist, take our course at the end of the book and you'll be able to paint as exquisitely as nature itself does!
