Friday Night: Light

One of the greatest challenges for artists is the realistic rendering of varying natural light conditions. Van Gogh wrestled with this too, although he certainly managed to capture sunlight and gaslight on canvas. Light also influences paintings and how we experience these: our perception of colours changes in differing light conditions. So light plays an important role both for the makers and viewers of paintings. In November Light was the theme of the month at Friday Nights.
