Form and Light examples

These are some typical examples of how I think about light interacting with form. Basic random shapes lit by different light sources to give the illusion of 3D form.

Mark Chong's excellent art tutorials, coupled with some of the principles gained from the early lessons of Sam Nielson's Advanced Lighting course, has inspired me to do these quite regularly.

  1. Amazing this exercises. Could you tell how is your process to to the black shape and think the form and lights before you paint? Thanks a lot and keep doing this good work.

    1. Hi! I think of the black shapes as silhouettes of whatever I want to draw. Usually I sketch a form using lines before turning it into a silhouette, but in these exercises I just draw a random blob of black paint, and try to imagine what kind of form could fit inside.
      Check out this video by Mark Chong for a better idea of how I do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9EKV_JZqkM

    2. Thanks for the link I watched the video and is very nice! When I paint simple form light the sphere, cilinder and box everything is ok and the form is good and truly. But when I begin mix forms putting intersections, corners, etc, my overall form breaks. I must need practice more this. I'd like to keep contact with you to continue seeing your journey and talking about art. Thanks.
