Painting colour and light 2.0 Group run through week Five!
@burvantill great job on the ambient tho! It does feel weird to shade less I agree. I'm learning a lot by doing these exercises.
@Coley Thanx. I think I just had an epiphany. It’s rainy and darkish here and I was just studying the trees outside trying to figure out why they don’t look flat. Texture! [face palm]
I’m going to add some texture lines for contour to my drawing to see if it helps.
@burvantill ooooh very epihanyish of you! I didn't understand what you meant at first but when I reread the post, I had the epiphany too

Here are my hard, soft, & ambient light attempts. I think I'm caught up now! But I should do more...
The shadow shapes are a bit out in places but I think they'll do and I was mostly concentrating on the colour and feel.
My favourite part is her hair in the soft light version. I don't know if that's because the colour of the highlight worked so well or because I just really like that sort of light generally and it took me away from our current constant darkness
I added some texture to my drawing and re-saved the ambient light. Here is soft light, which I really liked drawing and ambient again.
LOL Looking at them just now together it looks like the sun JUST went down. Totally unintended, but super cool.
Is this the two overlaid? It’s subtle but good
no, it was just the other lighting scenario I'm switching back and forth to do them both a few times.

More is always good When in doubt more can't hurt, but might help.
Nice work so far! Definitely seeing the differences in lighting scenarios!

It really does! That's really well done
Colour/value study. Aiming for a very ambient warm indoor kinda light. I think it's too warm, but I think I like the shadows and colours.
