Art Prompt - Light and Shadow Study


Notice the way the sunlight animates your home. Which spots are touched by the morning sun? The setting sun? On sunny days, light and shadow are deeply contrasted and sharp. On overcast days, the light is gentle and diffused. How do these differences change the way you see the objects being illuminated? Perhaps take photos of the same place in your home for several days in a row. Or maybe attempt to capture the fall of light and shadow in a drawing. Take a video of the movement of light and shadow on a breezy day. Place your body or your hand in line with the sun so you become a part of the composition. Making is secondary to seeing so you can always just observe. For more art prompts and tutorials, check out our Creative Classroom.
