New James Gurney Book!

We just received our copy of Jim's new book, Color and Light: A Guide For The Realist Painter, and you've GOT to check it out! Jim's ability to break down all aspects of painting into a beautifully explained science is truly amazing.
At last year's Illustration Master Class where the two of us are core faculty members, Jim was a guest faculty member. He treated us all to some of the most well thought out and entertaining lectures we've ever seen and now he has put that same information into this book. Aside from his obvious and celebrated artistic gifts, the man's ability for clear, insightful communication is second to none. And to top it off, he's just such a good guy!

I love this book and recommend it often to my students...and to other animators who are trying to get back into illustration after having spent decades not thinking about either color OR light! Jim is a truly remarkable artist and instructor.
