How to Paint Cast Shadows to Create Depth in Still Life Painting

Discover the illusion of three dimension. Understand the properties of simple and complex shadows and how they affect the illusion of space.

In still life painting, shadows create a sense of space and depth. It is all about creating an illusion. In these two painting exercises, students will discover how shadows add three dimensional depth to a two dimensional surface.

There is so much to learn about still life painting when it comes to painting shadows. Artists must consider several things, such as light direction, amount and quality of light, and the temperature of the light source.

Join instructors Susan Abdella and Sharon Hamilton as they describe and demonstrate the tricks and painting techniques for painting realistic cast shadows.

    Lovely class

    Great class, easy! I already finished the orange, on to the daisy class, it is is amazing. Love the ledger that the flower is on. Sharon did a lot of hours to cover every single detail. So much knowledge in every class! I cannot imagine how much money I saved having AAO classes instead of paying to a private teacher to learn all of that. I feel so much more confident about painting, and it has just been 6 months in this school. I enjoy online learning in this school!
