Marcus du Sautoy on "Symmetry, reality´s riddle" at Tedtalk.

Today the book "Color and light - a guide for the realist painter" from James Gurney finally arrived. http://www.amazon.de/Color-Light-Guide-Realist-Painter/dp/0740797719
If you don´t know James Gurney, take a look at his website and his blog at http://jamesgurney.com/site/
He is a traditional painter with great skills. I will immediately start reading the book. See you guys when I´m finished and hopefully a bit wiser. :)
