04-cover4web72During the Renaissance period (17th century), a shading technique called Chiaroscuro (Italian: chiaro = light, scuro = dark) emerged in the fine art world. Artwork was created on shaded or toned paper, usually gray or tan. Using background as a neutral shade starting point, an artist can use white and black to indicate shadow and highlight, nearness and distance. It results in a surprisingly realistic interpretation of three dimensions in Zentangle artwork. In this class we will apply these techniques to new patterns on ochre tiles.
