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, gurneyjourney.com. 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 instruction. "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

Peter Wileman is one of the most dynamic oil painters in the UK today and is currently President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. In Painting Light in Oils he demonstrates how to create atmospheric landscapes in oils with stunning effects. Light is what motivates so many painters. It excites the eye and radiates an energy that transforms an otherwise ordinary scene into something rather special. In his first book, Peter Wileman shows how he gets inspiration for his exciting landscapes and seascapes, working both on location and in the studio. Several step-by-step demonstrations show how he captures light and shade on his canvas with such amazing effect. There are also sections on tone and colour harmony, reflected and changing light and how to paint from both sketches and photographs. If you want to loosen up your oil painting and achieve landscapes and seascapes that are full of atmosphere, this is the book for you.
