  • Andrews McMeel Publishing
  • 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.

    James Gurney, New York Times best-selling author and artist of the Dinotopia series, follows Imaginative Realism with
    his second art-instruction book, Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter. A researched study on two of art's
    most fundamental themes, Color and Light 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.

    This book is the second in a series based on his blog, His first in the series, Imaginative Realism,
    was widely acclaimed in the fantastical art world, and was ranked the #1 Bestseller on the Amazon list for art

    "James Gurney's new book, Color and Light, 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
