|chi·a·ro·scu·ro [kee-ahr-uh-skyoor-oh] This is use of light and shade
to show feelings or share drama. Rembrandt is a master of chiaroscuro.
This is my stylized version of Rembrandt's "Three Trees." I love to play
with shading. It's basically getting a pencil and paper and thinking about
the dark and light spaces and forgetting about the lines. There are all
kinds of kits out there, but here is a link to one that is pretty reasonable
and should get you on the road of exploring light and shade for yourself.
