March 16, 2022 - Carrie Robles Demo
A tremendous thank you goes out to Carrie Robles for her March program on Exploring Light. Her presentation was a comprehensive examination of the role light plays in our artwork. Without light there is no color. Light brings the life to our paintings as backlighting, reflection, transmission, and refraction. Carrie explained that light is at its brightest at its source and travels a straight path, but its effects can change our perception of the true hue of an object. The participants were given a chance to play in pastel to capture the enhanced colors of a cluster of grapes and also the backlit glow of a black kitten’s ears. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and was reminded to take a second look at how we handle the light in our paintings. - Annette Grantham
