If Only Mondrian Had an iPad
Chromatic Arts announces the release of a new iPad app called "Colormixer." Colormixer is a unique tool for artists that unites the eye, hand, and mind to create finer color palettes, themes, and graphic color compositions.
Colormixer is also an interactive color tutorial for artists, designers and students working in screen media – an improved way of understanding color that opens up vast new areas of color expression. A new twist on traditional artists’ color theory, adapted for today’s screen media devices, Colormixer teaches methods of constructive color, where you learn by viewing and doing, through hands on experience. Amateurs can learn from scratch, and quickly gain practical color knowledge, while professionals will find that they can effectively leverage previous color training, and augment their color practice by using Colormixer.
Colormixer has two main aspects; the first is the practical usages of color: creating color palettes, themes and graphic compositions, using them as wallpaper, or exporting them into other graphic applications or social media. The second aspect is pure experience. Color play for its own sake — for fun, relaxation, or meditation. Professionals and amateurs alike will find enjoyment in the infinitely variable relationships of color.
David Witt, award-winning artist, designer, and teacher, says, “I created Colormixer out of my own desire to have a more intuitive way of creating with color on the computer. Colormixer is the result of many years of color R&D, synthesizing a new way to work with color that was literally within the blind spot between artists, designers and developers.”
