Light is as important as colour in creating the right effect, whether on a palette or on a computer. Whether you’re an animator, painter, photographer or illustrator, you need to know how to harness light in your work to create the right effect. Light for Visual Artists is the first and only book that explores the way light can be used to create realistic and fantastical effects in a wide range of media. Illustrator Richard Yot, known for his work in film as a lighting artist and stylised 3D illustrations, takes you through the fundamental properties of natural and artificial light, shadows, the interaction of light on different types of surfaces, reflections, as well as transparency, translucency and the effects of light on colour. Richard also explores how to observe the effects of light to create realistic images, and the creative use of light in composition and design for creating moods or setting a scene. This second edition has been updated with revised photos and artwork, as well as 15 practical exercises and new online video material. Packed with diagrams and illustrations, as well as computer game and film stills, Light for Visual Artists is an invaluable resource for animators, digital illustrators, painters, photographers and artists working in any medium.

This revised edition of the popular textbook on worship by renowned hymn writer and professor Ruth C. Duck provides theological foundations for worship and explores the ways Christians have adapted worship to various cultures to help them live faithfully and to communicate the gospel to others. The author celebrates the many languages and cultural settings in which the gospel has been, and is, preached, sung, and prayed. The goal of this volume is to support good pastoral and congregational reflection on what worship is and does. Consequently, Duck discusses many different forms of worship from several cultures (African American, Asian, Euro-American) and offers advice on how to read a congregation and define its culture in order to plan culturally appropriate worship. She includes many practical suggestions for preparing and leading worship, including diverse ministries of music, movement, and visual arts that are becoming more popular today. From worship's theological underpinnings, the book turns to worship leadership, forms of prayer, preaching, the sacraments, ordination, and various other liturgies. Because of its emphasis on vital and Spirit-led worship, this comprehensive book on Christian worship will be used in years to come, not only as a core textbook for seminarians and ministry students from a variety of cultures and traditions but also as a resource for local church pastors and laity who are dedicated to the enlivening of Christian worship. In this new edition, Duck updates and expands the recommended resources, updates the section on worship trends, enhances the section on multicultural worship, and revises marriage information based on cultural and denominational changes. Highlights include stories of four churches that are developing creative ways to grow and meet the possibilities and challenges of these times, especially in seeking justice, serving people in their neighborhood, and building bridges among cultures and religious groups. In addition, a new appendix by David Gambrell addresses the theological and practical questions surrounding online worship in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
A reluctance to raise the visual arts to a position of prominence persisted among many Christians. Nevertheless, the practical value of art as an instrument of instruction and the desire for monumental commemoration encouraged the ...

This beautifully produced survey of over a thousand years of Western art and architecture introduces the reader to a vast period of history ranging from ancient Rome to the age of exploration. The monumental arts and the diverse minor arts of the Middle Ages are presented here within the social, religious, and political frameworks of lands as varied as France and Denmark, Spain and Turkey. Marilyn Stokstad also teaches her reader how to look at medieval art-which aspects of architecture, sculpture, or painting are important and for what reasons. Stylistic and iconographic issues and themes are thoroughly addressed with attention paid to aesthetic and social contexts.

Amy Ione’s Innovation and Visualization is the first in detail account that relates the development of visual images to innovations in art, communication, scientific research, and technological advance. Integrated case studies allow Ione to put aside C.P. Snow’s “two culture” framework in favor of cross-disciplinary examples that refute the science/humanities dichotomy. The themes, which range from cognitive science to illuminated manuscripts and media studies, will appeal to specialists (artists, art historians, cognitive scientists, etc.) interested in comparing our image saturated culture with the environments of earlier eras. The scope of the examples will appeal to the generalist.

Postmodern art theory is an anomaly in the history of art theory. It can be thought of as anti-aesthetic, and is, in part, based on questionable and unreflective premises, such as the ontological conclusions of a Kantian metaphysic. The author makes the argument that a new and less subjective art theory needs to incorporate the aesthetic tradition, as well as consider the visual arts as involved and concerned with the transendent and universal. Without such a theory in place, art as well as art education run the risk of being anti-aesthetic.
