COLOUR AND LIGHT BY JAMES GOURNEY: A GUIDE FOR THE REALIST PAINTER
A researched study on two of art’s most fundamental themes, Colour and Light bridge the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge. Beginning with a survey of under appreciated masters who perfected the art of painting 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 through 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 indispensable tool for any artist.
