    Reference of lighting colour

    Iv gathered loads of human reference for my figurative drawing but what I really need is as much reference as possible for beatiful and colour

    This would be for painting studies to help me understand how light works in my studies so I can end up painting like:
    Marco Bucci http://www.marcobucci.com/index_.php
    Jeremy Vickery http://www.jermilex.com/jermilex.com/2D.html

    and all the other masters of lighting.

    So care to share any reference or websites I should be looking at. Or even films with great lighting i should study.

    Thanks

    Jim Gurney is publishing a book on lighting and color about... right now, which seems promising. Look it up on Amazon.

    Well, most movies from the past few years or so are pretty much useless for studying color from because of digital color "correction" (1, 2). Some of the best looking films from a color standpoint these days come from Pixar and other animation studios. As for photos, every illustrator should have a subscription to National Geographic.
