Exploring light and dark with colour

Having created a blended wash to convey the light from the sun, we have since been exploring the effect of using colour to create light and dark.

Using acrylic paint and canvas allows us to layer and improve our compositions at each stage. See how we’ve used colour, tint and shade to create a feeling of light from the sun on the treetops and shade on the forest floor.

These are still works in progress.
