Great learning experience. Deb and I decided that I should do another similar piece to make sure all that I learned is solidified in my head and hand. Now I have to think about objects that I want to incorporate to explore the light.
I also need to start a piece at home to put into practice the things I have learned about light revealing form. Out of this practice comes the best questions when I do get to class.
I thought I would include this link to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiaroscuro
This is the concept of light and shadow that I have been studying with Deb, and this explains it much better than I ever could.
Thanks for following along!
