To draw light seems paradoxical at first because if a canvas is white, it gets darker with every stroke of the pen. But light in a picture is so much more than just brightness: it is brought about by the shadows -- the change of light and dark. It is the shadows who create space and atmosphere. Lighting determines what is seen, what is hidden, and what can be sensed.
Authors Peter Boerhoom and Tim Proetel have gathered the basics for the depiction of light -- annotated and illustrated with helpful guidelines for the intuitive experience. For beginners and professionals alike, this books offers a refreshingly simple way of looking at the graphic creation of light and dark.
