This course is intended for students wishing to push the boundaries of their observational skill. Week by week you will be asked to study the elusive yet magical qualities that emanate from an eclectic range of lit objects. You will experience a sense of the unfamiliar revealed and the familiar transformed via the beauty and drama of light and luminosity.
This course is suitable for beginner students and for those more experienced in drawing, it will focus on gaining better understanding of the reading and recording of light; on, around and within lit surfaces; the ability to perceive fine gradations in each week’s subject matter and acquire a repertoire of skills to record them. The emphasis will be less on the science of how light works but on techniques to enable you to draw light and observe how objects with different surface properties react to light.
