As I mentioned in my prior post, there are problems when painting the light source inside a room. The modeling of a form is weaker when there are multiple light sources. It is usually best to have one light source or one strong light source and a weaker light source. In my painting, Ballerina Tying her Shoes I mentioned the light source is from the above right. (Prints and images on items of this painting are now on sale.) In my painting, Gymnast, the light is from above; the light source is stronger from the right. The artist, Degas’ light sources on his dancers might originate from above the figures, below and from both sides of the figures. In Degas’ painting, Dancing Examination, the light source is from above and both sides. Examine how the light flows over each figure in the room; it varies for each figure depending on the location of both the figure and light.
