Colored Pencil Pocket Palette is the perfect companion for the aspiring colorist. You'll learn how to mix every color necessary to create stunning art from a basic palette. With a coloring book built into the back, it is an easy reference for immediate, on-the-go coloring. Without the correct colors, art can't sing the way it's meant to. Compared to other mediums, mixing colored pencils for beginners can be quite difficult because instead of melding colors, you must layer them with the correct pressure, latching, and color density to reach your desired hue. Use crosshatching techniques explained in this book and the blended colored pencil guide to take the guess work out of coloring vibrant drawings. Each swatch shades from light to dark to show what amount of pressure you'll need to reach your desired opacity. There are instructions on how both dry and water-soluble pencils meld, so you can use your favorite colored pencil type or explore the medium. Comes complete with coloring pages in the back to test colors and make coloring easier on the go. Information is presented in a clear, precise, and thought out way from the perspective of a professional artist. The different methods of overlaying colored pencils are explained and demonstrated. Save time with your drawing and spend time practicing your craft than guessing your color palette.

From New York Times best-selling author of the Dinotopia series, James Gurney, comes a carefully crafted and researched study on color and light in paintings. This art instruction book will accompany the acclaimed Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn’t Exist. James Gurney, New York Times best-selling author and artist of the Dinotopia series, follows Imaginative Realism with his second art-instruction book, Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter. A researched study on two of art's most fundamental themes, Color and Light bridges the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge. Beginning with a survey of underappreciated masters who perfected the use of 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 though 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 indispensible tool for any artist. This book is the second in a series based on his blog, gurneyjourney.com. His first in the series, Imaginative Realism, was widely acclaimed in the fantastical art world, and was ranked the #1 Bestseller on the Amazon list for art instruction. "James Gurney's new book, Color and Light, cleverly bridges the gap between artistic observation and scientific explanation. Not only does he eloquently 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, Artist
