I had a few days of dazzling, low angled light coming through my north facing studio windows this week. It gave me a good look at the claw’s reflection on the high/gloss paper strategically placed for capturing it. I stopped work on the claw and focused on painting that lovely ghost image of it from this light source that is unique to late Oct. during days of full sun, between 12:30 – 2:00PM.
Shadows and reflections are just as visually interesting to me as the objects, and just as important to the success of a composition.
