I m usually not a fan of instructional art books All to often they devolve into breaking things down into a series of steps or simply showing a the different stages of one image While this breakdown might be helpful in creating that one painting or drawing it rarely helps you develop the skills needed to apply to original workThankfully Color and Light is not that sort of book Instead it is a wonderfully useful guide to how color and light works and how to incorporate them into your artworkThat s another benefit of the book since it focuses on color and light and not on a specific medium it is applicable for all sorts of media and field While it s geared towards artists either traditional or digital who create their artwork from the ground up the information on color schemes could also be useful to a photographerThis book is full to the brim of all sorts of useful information from different types of lighting to ways to think of the color wheel to how you create different surface effects Each topic is covered in a two page spread which while simple effectively conveys what you need to now Which brings me to another topic I can t believe that I m already five paragraphs into this review and haven t mentioned how wonderful James Gurney s art is If you know anything about James Gurney you ll know that he s the creator of Dinotopia and luckily for us he uses his own highly imaginative and beautiful paintings to help illustrate the principals in his bookIf you are at all interested in art this is a book that you should at least flip through Even if you don t create your own artwork you may very well want to marvel at the beauty inside this book

Color and Light review ✓ 3 James Gurney ´ 3 download characters Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ James Gurney S book is the second in a series based on his blog gurneyjourneycom His first in the series Imaginative Realism was widely acclaimed in the fantastical art world and was ranked the #1 Bestseller on the list for art instructionJames Gurney's new book Color and Light cleverly bridges the gap between artistic observation and scientific explanation Not only does he elouently 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 Artis. Overall I found the book uite interesting his works and illustrations are also often impressive and there are a lot of interesting fun facts in it however these latter two points are also the places where I think the book could have been better I was expecting based on the promotion for the book to be of an educational book with teaching instead a good portion of it seemed to be oriented towards showcasing the author s works and trivia I would have appreciated it even if the great works would have been dissected and of the descriptions would have been about the how to do it and less about the stories behind his particular works the stories about the actual content not about how he made itproblems he hit how he solved them That being said there is a LOT of interesting and fascinating content in there that got me thinking about a lot of stuff and his skills and works are a great role model and inspiration for harder work Very interesting book
