Newberry Color Theory is extraordinarily advanced. It might be the most important development in understanding the nature of light and color since Monet’s consistent execution of daylight colors of light and shadow. Newberry Color Theory compels the reader to conceptualize space, atmosphere, light, shade, and things as they are. And, the most difficult, to integrate them into one understanding of visual perception.
One unexpected response by viewers is they often felt being transported into the world of the pastels, of feeling the sand beneath their feet, of smelling the salt air, and of feeling the breeze against their faces.
The reader is helped that Newberry’s sixteen pastels are the end results of variations of the color theory, and they can judge for themselves how successful the theory is. For the artist it is best to approach the theory like an advanced year-long art course. For the viewer, it would be like studying a new philosophy, something that you comeback to again and again.
