Editorial Reviews

Review

James Gurney's series of illustrated fantasy adventure stories, beginning with 1992's Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time, produced a generation raised on Gurney's highly realistic paintings of an entirely unreal subject.... Still it was no surprise to the author-artist-blogger and his long-time publisher Andrews McMeel when his recently released second volume of art instruction, Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, became a bestseller for AMP immediately  upon its release in December 2010, selling out its 10,000-copy run in just two months.  (Mark Schulz, Publishers Weekly)

Dinotopia author and plein-air painter Gurney offers a practical, well-organized, and informative handbook for artists of all levels.  (Chronogram Magazine)

This is a terrific book, highly recommended not only for young artists but anyone with an interest in traditional art technique.  (Karen Haber, Locus)
