Significance of Shadows

ExitAs an artist I often see and look for shadows as a guide.

These are some of the ways in which I find them helpful in life and in my art.

  1.  They can help create form.
  2. They add an opportunity to explore the power of color.
  3. They can shelter me from the sun and heat.
  4. They can block direct sunlight from my palette and canvas so that I can see better.
  5. Sometimes they guide me to move.
  6. They can influence my perception of the present.
  7. They can help me express and make a point more clearly.
  8. At times I can see through them and learn something.
  9. They always change and are dynamic.
  10. Without them I have a hard time gauging true light.
