Subjects, Shadows, and Shapes

                             Drawing examples of Cast Shadow

Many subjects fascinate me as a foundation for my work. I am captivated with architecture especially European. Cafés and rainy weather also are appealing. The reason I stated European there is a romantic and dramatic feeling that intrigues my senses.
When I was in Ireland every where I turn there was a composition waiting to be drawn or painted. It was very magical! So many tones of green wonder why it is called Emerald City. Unlike Tuscany were it is so rustic looking with the landscapes lust tones of browns and reds. I try to capture the exquisite beauty of its romantic landscape within my studies and hope that my photographic references I have taken help me create the image I want to portray.
The creation for shadow and shapes also have been a fascination for artist throughout the ages. The cast shadow gives the piece a very dramatic feeling. This cast shadow is created on a form next to surface that is turned away from the source of light. When the form blocks the light, it causes a cast shadow to be formed.
