Color and Light

A Guide for the Realist Painter

Unlike many other art books that only give recipes for mixing colors or describe step-by-step painting techniques, Color and Light answers the questions that realist painters continually ask, such as "What happens with sky colors at sunset?," "How do colors change with distance?," and "What makes a form look three-dimensional?"

James Gurney — author and illustrator of the New York Times best-selling Dinotopia books — draws on his experience as a plein air painter and science illustrator to share a wealth of information about the realist painter's most fundamental tools — color and light. He bridges the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge for traditional and digital artists of all experience levels.

Author — James Gurney
