Easy to follow, detailed (but not loaded with technical terminology) and written in a way that makes it applicable to any type of visual art. It was broken down into short chapters that made sense; there was no "here is the colored balls, and now here's the human torso!" garbage.
I've read quite a few books on the subject, and until I got this one, Gurney's "Color and Light for the Realist Painter" was the best I'd read. This one at least ties with Gurney's book.
This is definitely a reference book I'm going to keep very close at hand for a very long time to come.
My ONLY complaint is with the publisher. I would have bought this when it came out, but was holding out for a digital version. After years of hemming and hawing, I finally relented and bought the print edition. I did contact the publisher, and they pretty much implied that they have no intention of ever making the effort to provide a digital version, this is a shame as I would love to have this always with me (on a mobile device). My only hope is Richard will find a publisher in the future, for his excellent work, that is a little more forward thinking.
Again, great book, but limited distribution options (paper is dead to some of us).
