Lights and Shadows

2-1a (1)

  • A cast shadow is a type of shadow that is created on a form next to a surface that is turned away from the source of light.  When a form blocks the light, it causes a cast shadow to be formed.  Every object that blocks light has a cast shadow associated with it.
  • Highlight is an area or a spot in a drawing, painting, or photograph that is strongly illuminated.
  • Midtone is an area of medium brightness, neither a very dark shadow nor a very bright highlight.
