Painting the Dramatic Effects of Backlighting

Acrylic Demo
This demonstration illustrates the dramatic effects of backlighting. When the light source in a composition is in front of you, its illumination of forms is known as backlighting.  The influence of light on vegetation when viewed from this perspective reminds one of stained glass.

Artist David Adams starts with a toned ground using a mixture of chromium oxide green and ultramarine blue in his step by step acrylic demonstration of  "Backlighting".  Other colors used in this demo are vivid lime green and white.
