Imaginative Realism

James Gurney is the author and illustrator of the Dinotopia series. He has also written a book on sketching and a second volume of this book called Light and Color which was an absolutely fantastic book. He doesn’t just try to show you how to paint, he gives you the fundamentals and knowledge of how to create great art. I think any artist’s bookshelves would be incomplete without one of his books.
Most art instruction books show you how to draw or paint something you can see: a still life, a landscape, or a portrait. But what if you want to make a realistic picture of something that you can only imagine? This book shows you the time-tested methods used by artists since the Renaissance to turn our dreams into reality.
