Reflected Light Lesson: What It Is and How it Affects Your Art

Reflected Light Lesson: What It Is and How It Affects Your Art

No matter what or how you draw or paint, what you’re really working with is light. Your subject is only the means by which you depict light.

The most noticeable light is direct light, whether from an artificial source or a natural source. But that’s not the only type of light.

Reflected light is light that comes from a source other than the primary light source. It bounces off something else and strikes whatever object you’re drawing or painting.

In this lesson, you’ll see how reflected light affects shiny surfaces, dull surfaces, and animal hair.
