Rachel Rubin Wolf is a freelance writer and editor. She is the project editor for the Keys to Painting series, as well as many of North Light's Basic Techniques series. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.From Library Journal:
As prolific editor and artist Wolf rightly notes, "Light elicits a host of reactions from us humans. Light is also the foundation for art. Without light there is no contrast, no color, no vision. Certainly, light's primacy and symbolic power make it the most compelling subject for the visual artist." Here, Wolf bears out her argument with 124 stunning examples by 95 artists, who also append brief statements about each work. This is an inspiring, visually rich volume but certainly not an essential purchase if one owns Wolf's previous volume on the same subject, Splash 4: The Splendor of Light. Either is a good choice for advanced artists. For artists seeking detailed instruction on the techniques of creating the ephemeral effects of light, see Patricia Monahan's Light in Watercolour.
