Lesson 23 Back-lit Produce

When an object is lit from the back the form is flattened and is defined by a narrow band of light along the edge. For this exercise we set up, photographed and painted simple fruit shapes back-lit by strong sunlight.

Evert kept the strong sun-lit areas white on top of the fruit.

Alice found interesting shadow patterns on the granite countertop.

Susan depicted the fruit using bold, dark shapes.

Jessalyn used rich wet in wet dark washed to create dramatic shadows and reflections.
