…so I want to work with light and shadow, freely available every day and night but how can a material highlight certain qualities of it and which once do I want to highlight? When using graphite I noticed that even though the marks are dark, the silvery metallic shine can dominate, confuse (first image)…covered with tracing paper subtleness moves in (second image). Once this drawing was complete I realised I mixed many things together (reflection, projection, light, shadow) separating the different aspects out to clarify is the way to go…perhaps…
