Have you ever looked at a painting and been absolutely mesmerized by how the artist was able to command the mood with the use of lighting? After visiting numerous art galleries in Europe last year I knew I needed to take some time to study lighting more. Now is the time. With the busyness of the year behind me, I can once again focus on art study. My plan for the summer is to study the works of Rembrandt who was a master at manipulating light.

As the summer progresses, I hope to post pieces with some of the different lighting techniques that Rembrandt used. I have a goal and I have a plan; let’s see where it takes me.
