These books are a personal ongoing source of study and inspiration; since I buy lots of them, I'll keep posting new titles and personal reviews here when possible. 

All books are listed in casual order.

Book I love n.2


This book is written by a photographer for photographers but I find that his way of talking about color and light totally fits the digital painter needs. It contains sections about color language and symbolism (each colour is discussed in detail), temperature, saturation and brightness, classic color schemes, harmony, unusual combinations and the effect on people. Plus some technical chapters about monitor regulations and color spaces. I chose this book for its simple and clear content organization and the beautiful pictures but I discovered so much more.
