TL5: Light and Shadow



Friday afternoon

Brenda Swenson


Light reveals form, color and texture. Do you struggle with shadows in your artwork? Bring your sketchbooks, and let me see what you’re doing. I’ll offer tips, share ideas and techniques to help guide you. We’ll discuss and explore different kinds of light, shadows and reflective color. Learn how to bring life and energy into your work and transform the ordinary into something extra special.
