The art blog "Making a Mark" has nominated Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter as one of the top five art books of 2011.
Katherine Tyrrell comments: "One of the things I really like about this book is that it was conceived, written and designed by an artist who drove the production process." To which I would add, and it was hammered in the forge of blog reader's comments and input, for which I am deeply grateful.
The other nominees are:
The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron
The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' by: Betty Edwards
Wall and Piece by Banksy
'The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance' by: Edmund de Waal
