Imagine that every object in front of you is a shape. Further, imagine that every space in between those objects is also a shape.
This means that everything around you can be seen as a series of interlocking shapes. The objects and spaces all fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
With the addition of light and shadow shapes, you have that many more pieces to play with. Light and shadow are shapes in their own right. The variety in these pieces is so arresting and evocative that you will be left in complete surprise.
My next post will talk about how to use this knowledge to take your drawing practice to another level.
Are you prepared to be surprised?
