Light Direction

We need light

What does it let us see?

How does it limit or enhance our painting?

Side Light

We will study the prismic colour slide as it moves away from the sun. We will see how much colour is reflected towards us from all objects and practice the balance of tones against light.

Higher Back Light

Higher light source  and diffused light rays. How the colour clarity diminishes to silhouettes.

Direct Light with Colour Contrasts

Take a different, relaxed approach. Ignore the detail. What's important?

Direct Light and Figures

We cover the intensity that clear, stronger light puts on the scene. How to get posture and character into into figures avoiding the random static, shapes especially when they are small. - and more.
