project 2 - light

light: Caravaggio development

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.

  1. Hi Ali. Love your blog. Very interesting. I particularly like your pictures of the Royal. Really good interpretation of the photos. The photo of your tree is lovely. It looks really 3D.
    Hope to see you soon. Julie and Nic
