I’ve selected 3 ideas to develop a little bit further.
The first idea is to take a picture by Caravaggio (St John the Baptist 1595) and loosely translate the lights and darks in cut outs.
Not sure where this is leading – but it’s been a great exercise at looking at his dramatic use of light and shadow. I’ll post work on the other two ideas early next week.
On the subject of light – here is a picture of our Christmas Tree. This year I’ve cut a branch from a pear tree in the garden and decorated it.
