MasterColors Releases 7 New Tutorials for Color Composition

HVC Color Composer by MasterColors has posted 7 new color composition tutorials for you to brush up on your color skills. If you’re a graphic designer or a photographer (or both) this one’s perfect for you. The free tutorials feature downloadable Photoshop templates from the works of the great 20th century colorists, Pierre Bonnard and Henri Matisse.

The tutorials will help you familiarize yourself with the HVC Color Composer, improve your color selection skills, and profoundly deepen your understanding of the way color works.

And what is the HVC Color Composer, you may ask? In a nutshell, this application will shortern the time you spend creating color palettes. There are many color pickers out there, some even free, but this one’s more than a color picker.

Color Composer measures numerical differences of all colors based on Hue, Value and Chroma or intensity (hence the name HVC). When it creates a palette, it does not give you only six other colors, but a whole lot more with various levels of contrast and complementary options.

The HVC Color Composer is a plug-in for Photoshop (there’s also one for InDesign). It’s like putting Photoshop’s color picker on steroids.
