From New York Times best-selling author of the Dinotopia series, James Gurney, comes a carefully crafted and researched study on color and light in paintings. This art instruction book will accompany the acclaimed Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn’t Exist. u003cpu003eJames Gurney, u003ciu003eNew York Timesu003c/iu003e best-selling author and artist of the Dinotopia series, follows u003ciu003eImaginative Realismu003c/iu003e with his second art-instruction book, u003ciu003eColor and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painteru003c/iu003e. A researched study on two of art's most fundamental themes, u003ciu003eColor and Lightu003c/iu003e bridges the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge. Beginning with a survey of underappreciated masters who perfected the use of color and light, the book examines how light reveals form, the properties of color and pigments, and the wide variety of atmospheric effects. Gurney cuts though the confusing and contradictory dogma about color, testing it in the light of science and observation. A glossary, pigment index, and bibliography complete what will ultimately become an indispensible tool for any artist.u003cpu003eThis book is the second in a series based on his blog, gurneyjourney.com. His first in the series, u003ciu003eImaginative Realismu003c/iu003e, was widely acclaimed in the fantastical art world, and was ranked the #1 Bestseller on the Amazon list for art instruction.u003cpu003e"James Gurney's new book, u003ciu003eColor and Lightu003c/iu003e, cleverly bridges the gap between artistic observation and scientific explanation. Not only does he eloquently describe all the effects of color and light an artist might encounter, but he thrills us with his striking paintings in the process." --Armand Cabrera, Artist
