Painting the Light by Richard Schloss
"Reading this book, Richard Schloss peeled away the magic curtain and found more magic."
-Eric Kelley (Book Den, Santa Barbara)
"The book is fascinating. The text is marvelous. I have learned Schloss's views on light and color, and probably won't ever look at landscapes the same way again. The images are lovely."
-Richard Payatt (Author and Art Critic)
20 years in the making, this is Richard Schloss's treatise on the way we perceive light and atmosphere and how he paints it, over the last 50 years.
