Sep 01, ISBN Mastery of light and shade — rendered with accuracy and expressive power — is the key to three-dimensional form in drawing and painting. Hogarth begins with the simplist kind of light and shade, showing how a dark silhouette on white paper can communicate form and space. He then shows how the silhouette is transformed into three dimensions with the addition of minimal light — the highlight. Following these instructory chapters, Hogarth devotes a separate chapter to each of the given basic categories of light and shade: single-source light; double-source light; flat, diffused light; moonlight; and sculptural light. In these chapters Hogarth illustrates the effects of these different kinds of light on a variety of subjects and examines both natural and artificial light sources. Moving on to more complex lighting effects, Hogarth explains spatial light — how light and shade can create a sense of "near and far"; environmental light — the effects of weather, time of day, and the changing of seasons; textural light — how light reveals the surface qualities of forms that range from rough stone to silk and satin draperies; transparent light — the effects passing through transparent materials like glass and water, and translucent substances like moving water or sailcloth; fragmentation light — the disrupted light we see in such subjects as fire, rain, and flying snow; radiant light — the intense light we see when we look into the light source itself, which may range from the sun to a candle flame; and finally the various kinds of expressive light invented by the artist — such as the symbolic and mystic light of religious art, or the paterns of light and shade that convey a mood or a psychological state.
