Artist Eye Training: Seeing Light and Shadows in daily life

Our newsletter and free guide – ‘Life Drawing Success’ –

Our eye training series continues! This time we are seeing light and shadow while out in the park or at home with a lamp, especially cast shadows and form shadows. Seeing values and the edges between them is a skill that will be useful whether you are drawing people, landscapes or objects. We also look at reflected light and ambient, diffused lighting.

The idea is that you can practise seeing things the way you need to see them for drawing and painting during daily life. It’s a great way to fit in extra practice, and also helps make the world even more visually wonderful.
