Being in and around a changing if steady light at the greenbelt near us has given me the visual impetus to actually think about something I’ve long liked in much of Renoir’s and other impressionists’ art work – dappled light.
Though I mostly capture it via photography, I want to be able to express it more fully in painting also.
My recent in-progress watercolor poster (with printed line works) goes in that direction, and I think I may have finally captured a digital shot of the finished version (slightly different from image below, but not by much) that I can upload it and do a post on it.
Sheila’s late morning walk with me gave me a chance to capture a few dozen shots, a handful of which gave me a bit of what I’m looking for for figures too —
Notice the emotional difference between the two similar shots taken close in time and place to each other.
And even with substantially less dappled light on her in the pic on the right, those patterned touched on her lower legs are I think really nice!
And of course, I’ve loved dappled light shots for a long while, like the 2019 shot below, but usually only paid them any mind to the extent I really like them, lol!
And sure, it’s obvious there’s something interesting going on with added contrasts of light / dark. But it seems it’s more than that. Why is it, I ask myself, that nature can throw dappled light just about anywhere and in the most different patterning, and it still all looks either ok, good or really stunning – but almost never bad!
My quick review of my Google search says this search has a potentially very interesting listing of resources and links about dappled light –
So what do ya’ll think? Is there something special ’bout dappled light you’ve read about or know or learned?
I have a feeling, that for me, it’s my next in my seemingly endless rolling revelations about what the heck is going on around me, lol! ❤️
Take care everyone – enjoy the changing dappled contrasts in your life! ♥️
