LET THERE BE LIGHTDRAWING 

Objects and environments which surround us are only visible when illuminated. Light not only allows us to see but determines how we experience form in space. As such, shadow is an absence, a lack of light as it has no mass or physical attributes. Light may incidentally fall or is intentionally cast upon an object or environment. 

 

When drawing the default methodology is to use a white piece of paper, a brightness onto which we apply a variety of tonal values that often darken with each additional layer. Only the brightest highlights are left white. This methodology of shading subverts the natural state of how we experience darkness and of how light actually operates when it falls, or is applied to various surfaces and spaces.


This introductory course offers the opportunity to employ a variety of different approaches so as to allow the student to understand how to successfully depict light both practically and emotively. It will provide valuable drawing processes and techniques for any artist, whether their interests be representational or abstract.
