Light, Shadow, Sfumato in Art, My Painting Study Golf



In my painting, Study Golf, I wanted to convey the gesture and form of the golfer looking at the golf course with light, shadow and hues (color).  I modeled the form of the golfer in light, mid tones where appropriate and shadow with warm and cool hues respectively.  The modeling with values (gray scale) gives the figure a third dimension. The artist, Leonardo da Vinci developed the technique, sfumato that used fine changes from light to dark values and vice versa. The warm sun also casts a light on the ground which contrasts with the cool cast shadow and shadow on the ground.
  
This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
