Week 5 is titled "Using Light to Add Dimension to Botanical Illustrations". There are a lot of exercises! In fact, there are so many that I will wait to describe as I work through each. For now, I'll just list some basic principles we'll be working with this upcoming week.
The four main categories of light:
- Form Shadows
- Reflected Light
- Cast Shadows
- Low Side
Our instructor, Marcia, has called upon four of us to provide student input that could become a component of a Cornell presentation, "Facilitating Online Learning: An Introduction to Tools and Methods." Sounds interesting and fun. More on this as it develops.
Dutch Masters: The Age of Rembrandt came in today. The little Sony DVD player sits well on my elliptical trainer so I'll be getting in some entertaining exercise. :-)
