Lesson 2 June: Shading techniques, values, and shadows
Different forms have different surface textures. For this reason, when recreating for accuracy, it is important to learn and apply different shading applications. Being able to recreate different types of surfaces can really enhance an artwork. In addition, the importance of value and contrast is extremely important as well. Having a nice blend of high key, mid tones, and low key values can capture the dynamics of the lighting. Finally, treatment of form edges will also be addressed in this lesson.
