David Hornung is a painter and an educator. He has been teaching painting, drawing, and design at American art schools and universities since 1976. David came to Adelphi in the fall of 2004 to chair the Department of Art and Art History.

Since the early 1990's, David has specialized in teaching color theory and practice to painters, graphic designers, textile designers, and illustrators. In 2004, his book, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, was published by Laurence King Publishing Ltd. in Britain and distributed in the United States by McGraw-Hill. The book is based on his years of teaching color at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Taking a practical approach to colour, Colour: A Workshop for Artists and Designers is an invaluable resource for art students and professionals alike. With its sequence of specially designed assignments and in-depth discussions, it effectively bridges the gap between colour theory and practice to inspire confidence and understanding in anyone who works with colour.

This second edition has been carefully reviewed and revised throughout. Presented in a new larger format, it includes much-enhanced sections on key colour principles such as colour perception, visual structure, materials and techniques, psychological experience of colour, and colour composition in digital formats. Generously illustrated including all-new, contemporary examples this book provides a unique set of tools that make the complex theory of colour accessible and practical.
