Lesson 13 Shadows on Buildings

The purpose of this lesson was to consider the darkness and color of shadows. I always forget how long it takes to draw buildings and because our classes are only three hours long the examples below are only half completed. But I think there is enough there to see the interesting patterns shadows can make and how these can be used to organize a composition.

Jan made her shadows a darker version of the wall color and put them in 40% darker.

Kay has the shadows depicted lightly at this stage but you can already see what an interesting pattern they will make on the center building.

Teresa is using blue/violet for her shadows which work nicely against the bit of green lawn.
