Depicting soft light will result in gentle gradations of tone in your color from the source of light. The shadow from your soft light should also be soft. Depicting bright light will produce a more dramatic extreme of contrasts in color and a darker shadow.

Hello and thank you -- I purchased your DVD and here is the end product! Dennis and I live in Palatka, FL and this bar is on our back deck. So when I finished the painting from the DVD, Dennis had a great idea to put it in the place where the boards were taken out!
Your DVD was very easy to follow. SO much fun. Thanks for sharing your talent!
Have a great day and again thank you for making painting fun and easy!
