Back to Basics Class #2
The planned lesson this week was about defining
and recognizing common painting vocabulary:
main source light / ambient light / cast shadows
form shadows / shadow core / reflected light etc.
I chose, what I thought would be a simple up
for a quick demo.
I found myself in trouble right away,
by making the shadow sides of the bananas way too dark.
Then I noticed the reflected light off that red cloth
actually made the bananas glow!
As challenging as demos can be,
they are great teaching and learning tools.
Watching me struggle, figure it out, and make adjustments
was the real lesson here, I think.
For all of us!
