Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There is an abundance of material on how to create luminous works in a variety of media (for example, see John Hammond's Capturing Light in Acrylics). Deibler's book, however, is the only one to isolate the array of light effects specific to landscapes. Deibler defines the four keys to the successful painting of light as shape, value, color, and edges. The book is packed with solid information-often in "tip boxes" that provide useful bites of information-and illustrated with Deibler's accomplished and highly varied work. From the Colorado Rockies to Venice and the New England seashore one sees how light in every season defines and invigorates landscape. Light and Color is another volume in Barron's fine "The Painter's Corner" series. A translation of a 2002 Spanish publication, it is a remarkably broad and useful look at the uses of color in creating luminous artwork. The first half presents the theoretical foundations of contrasts involving color and light. Examples from painters throughout the history of art illustrate each point. The second half makes use of ten exercises on a variety of themes introduced in the first half. Brief yet cogent, they span still lifes, landscapes, interiors, and the figure. Both titles deserve a place in most art instruction collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
