Book DescriptionPaintings with light have a hidden energy--an energy that captures the attention of the viewer. Painting Light and Shade shows artists how to precisely control light and shade in their paintings to achieve masterful results. Readers will learn how to observe light and shade, and will discover helpful techniques for painting light from the sky, capturing highlights, painting shadows, and capturing the changing nature through the day. Featured paintings from professional artists, each accompanied by a tonal sketch, are broken down into step-by-step demonstrations that focus on relevant techniques, allowing readers to learn while simultaneously creating paintings that shimmer with light.
