Swatch: the Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos

Swatch: the Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos

Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos; illustrated by Julia Denos. 2016. Watercolors, pen and ink, and pencil with Adobe Photoshop.

Brief summary: Swatch was a free-spirited girl who loved color. She collected colors to tame them except yellow did not want to be tamed. Swatch learns from yellow’s wild and free nature that not all colors should be tamed.

Comment: Children will find the illustrations full of energy. I plan to share this with the art teacher who will appreciate the freedom of color and the positive energy the book conveys to budding artists.
