This is THE BOOK for what concerns painting and color theory. The author is an amazing traditional painter and a really dedicated artist and teacher who puts in this book all his passion for the craft and his long time experience. I love the clarity and arrangement of the chapters where the main issues related to types and temperature of light are discussed and supported by amazing oil paintings by the author. It's a must have for the art student and a beauty for an artbook collector like me.

Your digital or traditional painting won't be the same after a journey through these pages!
