Reviews for Color and Light
Got send here by John Silva, seems to be realy good! by Max
One glorious book
You know how it feels when you find that book that feels like you've just found the holy grail?
This is one of those books. This is information that is a must have to any artists if you're serious about learning what truly is needed to learn about painting or rendering truly good images with color and volume.
This is what all the other technique books are lacking, which is a sad fact. by Audrienne Degiorgio

Beautifully illustrated, very informative, this book explains many natural phenomena that quite all art technique books simply skip. Illumination types, color of light and shadow, gamut masks, a lot of useful information for realist painters. by Agnes Preszler
While the book seems to be mainly directed at traditional painters (me being digital) I find the break down of different light types and applications of colors quite helpful. by Katarzyna Zaleckaunder review
