Despite their two-dimensional qualities, shadows can give mood and at times, the illusion of depth to paintings.

Today’s featured drawings are:

TOP: Coles Bay

MIDDLE: Lake King William

BOTTOM: Tatlow’s Beach, Stanley

Each of these drawings feature a shadow ‘wall’, that act as a flat screen, but without destroying the three-dimensional qualities of each subject.

The lower image has a very interesting ray of sunlight which has ‘outlined’ a leaf.

It’s true to say that shadows ‘are your friends’ as they can be used in a variety of positive ways, despite their ‘negativity’.
