Shadow Analysis

Sciography, The science associated with the calculation of cast and projected shadow forms can get extremely complicated and a subject best conveyed in its simplified form. Wilmar Schutz incorporates sciography into “Shadow Analysis” to test our understanding of how light source and tonal values and shadow massing impact on your architectural portrait before it proceeds to finished artwork. At “Shadow Analysis” (stage-3) a preliminary A3 watercolour design study that incorporates “Sciography” is presented to you. It’s an important quality step to gauge how depth, mood and atmosphere are perceived and incorporated into your architectural portrait. The projection of refracted light into shadow massing is of particular interest to us because this informs the liveliness and character of how shadows communicate with the finished artwork.
