6.1 – The Logic of the Light

Please purchase the course before starting the lesson.

Strictly speaking, any visual experience is all about the light. In fact, we're not able to perceive with our eyes anything but light, and so in a real sense our subject in drawing is in fact light itself. The light, however, is reflected off the objects and surfaces we see and is shaped and influenced by them in the process. So what we see is a kind of hybrid of the light itself and the structure of the objects with which it interacts.
