I was deeply impacted a month or so, I was watching a documentary on the Science Channel, I think it was "Brain Test" or "Brain Teaser" and it was on the optical illusions the brain produces. They stated that we do not see with color, we see with shadows. I sort of knew this but it had never been stated that way. My very first art class, I think maybe the 9th grade because that was the first year we were allowed to choose an elective class and I chose art. First day our teacher informed us that for the next 3 months we would be drawing with pencil only, no color, no medium, pencils only and I was at first horrified, no color? It was probably one of my most formative classes ever, it made me look at shadows, it made me realize that there are a million shades of gray between black and white. Our brain uses those shadows not only to define but to position and gain perspective of where the object is in relation to ourselves. Wow, I have been on a shadow quest and playing with my Copics in a whole new way.
Now, does this card have photo corners applied? Well yes, but not dimensionally, they were airbrushed in, creating a deep shadow and then the bottoms were line drawn with brown, which creates the illusion that there is another dimension on the paper. So if you ever hear that you see in shadows not color, believe it. Happy Sunday, Hugs
