Featured Artists: Old Masters - Light effects

One of the topics we are considering studying for Year 5 is the color and effects of the Old Masters. One classic effect is the way the light was used by old masters, Vermeer, Rembrandt and others. A perfect example of this wonderful glowing light is the 17th century painting by Johannes Vermeer, "The Milkmaid".

Some pieces from our recent FFFC challenges that I think exhibit this quality of light are below:

Ann Ruthsdottir's Wild Rose for Challenge 41

Donna Blum's Flurlady for Challenge 44

Jane Stricker's Magic Mushrooms for Challenge 45,

Cherie Brown's Newfoundland Rose from Challenge 45

Chris Predd's Lemons from Cheerios for Challenge 40
