Lucy Willis’s work has always been about light, and even more, the interplay between it and shade. Most books of this type will include the word in the title, but Lucy already has one of those. If that was a consideration here, it has produced a more apt one as both aspects are equally important.
In this generously-illustrated work, Lucy examines, discusses and demonstrates all aspects of capturing light, from full sunlight to deep shade. She’ll show you how to use the white of the paper against carefully-selected colours to impart brilliance as well as how to use muted shades to capture shadows. She’s also very sound on working against the light.
Subject matter includes interiors, exteriors, landscapes, buildings, people and still lifes and the attention to detail throughout is remarkable.
As well as being a showcase for some exquisite work, this is also a thorough analysis of and guide to working with one of the most important elements of any painting.
