Color and Temperature

"Warm Pear"  Acrylic on canvas, 12 x 9 inches

I have often admitted I am an art supply junkie, and of course that includes books about art.  So, it is time to start sharing some reviews of painting books.  The latest one in my collections is “Color Theory” by Walter Foster.  This is an easy to read, small book that really covers the subject well. 
   A good way to use a book on painting is to read it then go through and pick some examples and give it a try on your own.  Thought I would share my first practice.
I painted a pear trying to capture the difference in warm light and cool light, just one of the subjects covered in this book.
