Mini-Course: Working with Shadows (Option A)


This mini-course teaches you how to find the degrees of values in shadow, how to handle textures in shadow, and how to use the color wheel to interpret cool shadows in warm light and warm shadows in cool light.

This option is for those who have not previously purchased the videos in this series.  If you already own the video lessons, choose Option B.

The course includes four hours of pre-recorded instruction, email support from Dianne (for the duration of the course) and two live stream coaching sessions with Dianne via Zoom.   Once you register for the course, you will receive a Syllabus that guides you through it and the four video lessons.





Working with shadows

This self-pacing mini-course includes the four lessons in the Working with Shadows Series 37,  two live online coaching sessions with Dianne, and as-you-need-it email support for the duration of the course.

Here’s how this mini-course works:  Once you add the course to your cart and check out, you will receive an email containing links to the four videos, a Syllabus that guides you through the course.

          You will set your own schedule for working through the course.


Lesson 1: Reading Shadows

Using as her reference foliaged trees on either side of a graveled road, Dianne guides us through locating and interpreting the three degrees of shadow: deep, moderate and shallow. Moving through these one by one, she calls our attention to their change in color as well as value.

Lesson 2: Textures in Shadows
Continuing with her study from Lesson One of this Series, Dianne shows how we can interpret textures in shadow areas by finding and translating variations within the value range of deep, moderate and shallow shadows.

Lesson 3: Warm Light, Cool Shadows
Using as her reference a bale of hay in a pasture under direct warm sunlight, Dianne shows how we can use the color wheel to make decisions for interpreting cool shadows under a warm light.

Lesson 4: Cool Light, Warm Shadows
Using as her reference a bale of hay in a pasture under an overcast sky, Dianne shows how shadows become warmer in cool light because areas not in shadow are actually cooler.
