1. Intro: when you see a thing in front of you. But you don't know how to pen. It's with what color. Hi, kitty. I'm coming back. Rambo. I'm a visual crater and animate joing educator in lists, Gil shirt cost. You will learn the light. A theory. So what? You will know the relationship between light and shadow, and I will demonstrate how to explain the line intestate wave color. So it is great for those who want to know how to job right and shadow with what covered. If you want to know the secret, come in to live cloth and after you know the knowledge and you let the knowledge from Li's class you can try to Joe my intensity on any stuff. With what color? Okay, that start. 2. Supplies: Okay, guys, before look loss. We have to prepare those things while the college and two glasses off water. Usually I woke for the color pants in here, and after a lot, I will put in here so lot the water in here will not dirty to watch. And I know what they call the pants will be clean. And while the color paper and this cross I just prepare to water column pants and I will pull the brand and flies a project and results. So you will know what kind of what color pants I use. Okay. So little space. You have to prepare first. 3. Light theory: before I show you how to use the water cover toe present low intensity, off light and shadow. I want to explain the relationship between light and shadow. So what, You can have some Pasic concepts before going. Yeah, so everybody knows. The stronger the light, the more visible low shadows, the softer light, the last clear le shadows. But when we are joined, it is always difficult for us to control a joy off shadows. Sometimes we joke is too weak. Sometimes we joke is too strong and dirty. So I want to show you some reasons that will affect the intensity off white, the first air. When there is more dust or moisture in the air, the light will weekend and become softer because off diffusion, just like the first picture, you can see the shadow and the wind is not really clear. It's just like, uh, it iss misty right? And conversely, if the air is thinner, the light will be clear. Just like a Losec. A picture and you can see the shadow just clear rights. It's so clear. Compare with low first of picture and the second isn't light intensity. Okay, now you can see this picture. The line is soul stronger and lo shadow just clear. Right, Solis? Stronger light. The more obvious lot shadow, the weaker the light, the more unclear Le Shadow. So let's see the second picture. Okay, now you can see in here. The lot is so weak, so lush, it'll just blurred, right. It's different. The first is like this. So it iss light intensity. And the third is the these terms between object and the shadow. So when the object is closer to learn object, the shadow would be more obvious. When the object is feather away, the shadow will be more blurred. So in here you can see the person is just like in here, right? Um the ground and the people is closing here. So in here, less shadow just clear. But because the people and in here no shuttled is so far. So you can see the shadow just blurred and we can see another picture Here. You can see the girl stand in here and the shadow is so clear. Right? But because the tree is so far so in here the shadow is broke. So this is the distance between the object and the shadow. Pass it on the above reasons. When you are joining, you must consider the reason why low shadows in the picture are so strong and weak. Although there are many details to consider at the beginning off London enjoying you don't need to calculate all the details off the relationship between factors just a pile above concepts according to your needs and start to experiments with different effects. 4. Expression: after we talk about life theory, I think you already know what the relationship between light and shadow. So now I want to show you how to use the water color to present the intensity off light evil. A wife is soft. Actually, the shadow will not strong salt. We can, George, please. - Okay , it will. Light is soft. You can see the shadow is not joining too much. And the color IHS Satch, read it. But if you're light and stronger, this will be like this here because I want to that do you know in here the light is stronger salt off course. The shadow will be doctor and clear. - And now they say it's just meat off. If you'll see here, it's like a intense wind in here. You will see like this. Okay, so now you can see if you make the water cover toe Qatar like this from soft light toe. Intense, liked Look, cover. We're different, right is more soft and the cover will not talk like this. But if you use intense light to cover year illustration off course, you will know these. That's off course. The light is stronger. No white and the talk will be more clear. But if is that go soft off course, The light and the shadow place well, not half the big difference. The car. The wrench is not far. You know. It's like a cross. But in here, if the light is intense, light off course looking trust between light and shadow is others. So you can know the soft, light and intense light. 5.
