Color and Light

I was given a copy of the book Color and Light by James Gurney for Xmas, if you are at all interested in painting, no matter what media you use, take time to have a look at this book. The explanations are enlightening (pardon the pun) and structured in bite sized chunks that makes learning easy.  The book is full of diagrams and illustrations and is a pleasure to browse. I’ve learnt things that I wished I’d known when I was much younger! You can find the book here and James Gurney’s blog here gurneyjourney.


Reading material

A while ago I posted about the number of books by Swedish authors that I had been reading, as an update I’d like to add Henning Mankell to the list, he’s written quite a number of books mostly police/crime stories it seems he’s best known for his series of mystery novels featuring  his most famous creation, Inspector Kurt Wallander. If you haven’t ever read anything I recommend you to give one of his books a try. I’m reading the French translation so can’t comment on the quality of the English translations.
