Book Talk at the Wheeler Centre: 

Merv Moriarty was at the Wheeler Centre, in Melbourne October, 2013.

Watch Merv as he explains his original theories and discoveries contained within COLOUR – the definitive guide.

Merv’s work with thousands of students, and his own findings as an artist and art educator have resulted in his theories, proving that “right colour” is objective, not subjective.

Here he is providing an understanding of colour and how we see it; explaining his innovative theories on interval and linkage, mixing colour as pigment and how his Three-Section Colour wheel system underpins the principles of colour mixing.

Essential for everyone interested in or working with colour.
