Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Evoking the phenomenon of light by means of mere paint on canvas is one of the most difficult feats in realistic art. This slim guide breaks down for the reader how humans see light, including a brief discussion of the science of light rays and photons. In three sections, "Basic Concepts of Light and Shadow," "Shading Studies," and "Painting Light," Roig (Practical Course in Drawing and Painting) offers many examples of two-dimensional pictorial representations of light painted by master artists and over a dozen short exercises and experiments highlighting a variety of techniques using shading, value, and color to portray all forms of light and shadow. VERDICT This title will be popular with beginning and intermediate hobbyist painters.
