Beverly Ash Gilbert not only has a way with color she has a way with words. Her amazingly beautiful, breathtaking photographs are repainted with her words, so much so that if I closed my eyes I could see what she was describing...

Her explanations of color, hue, tone, color choice based on color theory are easily understood and able to be applied immediately in whatever project one is involved."
