Cones, Forms in Art - Light, Temperature, Value


Image of my painting, Outdoor Market, and the image converted to a gray scale. See reproductions of my art at http://www.zazzle.com/arlenebabadartist.

The umbrellas are cones in form. The warm sunlight is coming from the left front side. These areas of the umbrellas are warm and light in value. This is particularly noticeable on the left front umbrella and the back right umbrella. The mid tones (local colour) are next to each side of the umbrellas’ light. The form shadows are on both sides of the cones’ mid tones. The shadows are cool and darker than the mid tones. Again, changes of colour temperature and value are not abrupt as was seen in the cube/rectangular forms. These changes are soft and blurred as they were in the spherical and cylinder forms. (See my previous posts.)

In August 2010 my paintings will be exhibited at the Art for All Canada’s Rainbow Gallery. The Gallery is at 80 Front St. East across from Toronto’s historic St. Lawrence Market. You enter the Gallery through Rainbow Cinemas, Market Square. Viewing the exhibits is free. At the top of this site is a link to Art for All Canada’s Gallery. Gallery hours are from 12:30 pm to 10:00 pm daily. My exhibit will be installed the afternoon on Friday July 30, 2010 and ends the morning of Monday August 30th. http://www.artforallcanada.org.
