Base 5: The Chiaroscuro Technique

R 219.99

In base five, we look at the chiaroscuro technique, which is utilised in visual arts to represent light and shadows that define three-dimensional objects. Then we switch over to linear perspective, a system to create the illusion of depth on a flat surface.

It’s important because you can realistically portray space and depth in your artwork by using math principles.

Please note: you will be purchasing the downable version of the given lesson
