Lately I’ve been working on the idea of bright lights surrounded by darkness – what kind of colors and effects are created with different kinds of lighting, etc.
With this piece I’m testing out some ideas about shadows and the way light is reflected off wet stones vs. dry stucco. Like any sketch, I tried to work “quickly” (2 days) and not over think it; I just wanted to create the illusion of light in general.
Over the next few months I’ll be experimenting and testing out different theories with these little pieces, until I get a handle on the idea for a large composition. I’ll share my sketches as I go along. Hope you enjoy them!
