EVOLUTION OF LIGHTING
I CHOSE THIS PICTURE BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKEST PICTURE I COULD THINK. THE LIGHTING AND SHADING ARE VERY SIMPLE BUT STILL PORTRAY A VERY DRAMATIC SETTING.
IN THIS WORK I FEEL THAT THE UNDERSTANDING OF HOW LIGHT INTERACTS WITH COLOR IS BECOMING MORE APPARENT TO ARTISTS.
LIGHTING, SHADOWS AND THE OVERALL CHAOS OF THE BATTLE ARE REALLY BROUGHT TO LIFE BY EFFECTIVE USE AND UNDERSTANDING OF LIGHTING.
SHOWS EFFECTIVE USE OF LIGHTING BEFORE IT WAS REALLY UNDERSTOOD.
Portrays the emotion of the scene through the lack of lighting.
Lighting is used to focus the viewer the emphasize the event.
The lighting sets the mood creating almost a calming atmosphere in the painting.
The lighting makes the painting feel surreal and almost untouched by man.
The lighting really enhances the emotion and chaos of the scene.
Shows how lighting can change vastly throughout a single painting.
The lighting in this scene helps to emphasize the chaos and destruction taking place in the background.
The lighting adds to the sense of despair and distraught that soldiers are feeling in the painting.
The lighting enhances the background really bringing it forward into the action of the scene.
The lighting through the smoke from the rifle fire helps to recreate the feel and intensity of the battle.
This painting shows how light is effected by the colors it comes into contact with and the artists understanding of those principles.
