In some instances raking light may help reveal pentimenti or changes in an artist’s intention.
The term raking light may also be used to describe a strongly angled light represented in illusionist painting, although not strictly between 5º and 30º.
Moreover, raking light create cast shadows that run parallel to the picture plane, so they do not suggest spatial recession as well as shadows that are cast backwards by light originating from a higher angle.
Often, painters use a three-quarters lighting which reveals the great part of an objects surface but creates at the same time a strong sense of volume.

Dutch theorists of borrowings provided that they were integrated into ones painting and might appear unrecognizable.
A sheet of paper covered in thin paste was laid on the surface of the painting, which was then placed face-down on a board or table.
The new lining canvas was pressed down onto the back of the picture by hand; then the outer edges of the lining cloth were fastened to the table by means of a large number of tacks, and a piece of wood with a rounded edge was passed over the back of the cloth, to ensure perfect adhesion.
During the twentieth century, it came to be realized that the impregnation of the paint layer with wax could have deleterious effects, including darkening of the picture, especially where canvas or ground were exposed.
However polyester canvas is often used for strip-lining, where only the edges of the painting are backed, and for loose-lining, in which no adhesive is used.
Painters and sculptors made a concerted effort to extricate themselves from their medieval heritage and to distinguish themselves from mere craftsmen.
A shift begins to occur in the fourteenth century when painting, sculpture and architecture began to form a group separate from the mechanical arts.
When used as a means of expression, it is synonymous with illustrating.
Both rendered and captured images can be mixed, edited, or both.
Caravaggio (1571–1610) had become famous for his paintings of ordinary people or even religious subjects in compositions.
This kind of repoussoir was generally placed on the left-hand side of the composition because we tend to rapidly scan images darting from the left to the right as when reading.
Period art manuals recommended that the background areas, usually the least important from a thematic point of view, be painted first, leaving reserves for the important foreground elements.
Portrait painters routinely completed the face before working up the background or the figure’s body (see image left).
Many plants, particularly woody plants, produce resin in response to injury.
Plant resins are valued for the production of varnishes, adhesives and food glazing and paint mediums.
Retouchings are done in a soluble medium that differs from the original so that they can be removed easily.

A violin once hung on the background of same picture, most likely itself another later addition.
Smooth painters went to incredible lengths to achieve the perfect, polished illusion of reality.
It is most likely that fijnschilders worked at least partially naer het leven (from life).
To best appreciate the two styles, it was recommended that art lovers adjust their viewing distance: farther away for a roughly painted work, close up for a finely executed one.
The unequivocally completed, clear and polished work of art tends to exclude the spectator from participating in the picture.
Rounding was not only achieved by the use of light and shade, or more crudely in former times, by shading, but by the proper management of contour.
Many painters introduced lines an round some objects to accentuate certain of their qualities but the were generally variable in application, colored and never too hard.
If the large mass shadow of an objects is dark along its edges as it is the innermost parts, the mass shadow will appear flat.
It requires not only exacting manipulative skill and a thorough knowledge of the artist’s materials, but a comprehension of its peculiar optical and physical properties.
The difficulty of painting satin was vastly exacerbated when rendering the restless patterns of light and dark created by the elaborate cut of contemporary fashion, which behave more like pieces fractured glass rather than a flat mirror.
In general, the maximum lights of light-colored satin must be rendered with very light tones of thick paint while the darks must be rendered translucently with somewhat lighter tones than those used for similarly colored but non-reflective fabrics.
These reflections sometimes take on shades of the color of nearby objects.
The depiction of satin is further complicated by the fact that its stiffness makes folds break at more or less sharp angles instead of bending predictably like more pliable fabrics.
Given the difficulties of representing the unique actions of satin, art historians have assumed that garments made with this fabric were depicted from life.
To the left, an oval-shaped plane of light gray, from which spider-like tendrils spread out in all directions, clearly informs us of the musician’s propped up knee.
The amount of saturation does not affect the basic hue of a color but it does alter the color’s intensity.
Vermeer carefully balanced a few areas of strongly saturated colors with larger areas of soft grays and browns.
In the case of wall paintings, raking light helps show preparatory techniques such as incisions in the plaster support.
Raking light gives volume to objects and accentuates texture.
Painters instinctively avoid the lowest angles of raking light because they divided solid objects into to two essentially equal parts: a face would be half in light and half in shadow, which tends to have a flattening effect.
Since it is easier to evaluate an object’s form, color and texture when it is illuminated rather than when it is in shadow, the a wider angle of light is generally preferable.
He frequently modified the scale, the shape of objects and even the fall of shadows for compositional or thematic reasons.
In cases of extreme decay, the original canvas may be completely removed and replaced.
The edges of the canvas were trimmed, leaving the original support smaller than the new lining.
The back of the picture was then coated with paste, copal varnish, or a glue made from cheese.

When the glue had dried sufficiently, the lining was smoothed with a moderately hot iron.
Fielding also describes the process for the complete removal and replacement of the canvas.
It was then ready to receive its new cloth, which had previously been covered with copal varnish, glue, or paste.
The use of hand-ironing is liable to produce a flattening of impasto.
Although experiments with synthetic fabrics were carried out during the 1960s and 1970s, traditional linen cloths are still usually used for lining.
This latter technique helps protect the painting from atmospheric pollution, but does not flatten or consolidate the paint surface.
Giotto (1266–1337) and reached its climax in the sixteenth century.
Renaissance, painters and sculptors were still regarded as members of the artisan class, and occupied a low rung on the social ladder.
In the fifteenth century, the training of a painter was expected to include knowledge of mathematical perspective, optics, geometry and anatomy.
It can also be used to describe the quality of execution of that process.
The alternative method to rendering an image is capturing an image such as photography or image scanning.
Dutch figure painting where they function as a major force in establishing the spatial depth that is characteristic of painting of the seventeenth century.
Repoussoir formulae is still used in landscape painting and is influential in photography as well.
Both the curtain’s warm tone and the heavy impasto paint application makes it appear even nearer to the viewer.
A reserve generally corresponds to the area within the outer-most contour of a single object such as a figure, a tree or an architectural feature.
Successively, each area of the composition was worked up in a piecemeal fashion with full color, creating reserves of unpainted objects.
This sequential system would allow to the painter to softly blend the outer contours of the foreground figures into the colors of the background, slightly overlapp ing them and creating a more convincing sensation of roundness.
Resins are used to increase the gloss of oil paint, reduce the color and drying time of a medium, and add body to drying oils.
Retouching is usually intended to be invisible to the naked eye, but there may be reasons for it to be distinguishable when the painting is viewed at close range.
It is believed that the rough manner stimulates the activity of the eye far more powerfully than painting with a smooth surface.
The roughly finished painting demands an intellectual response from the beholder because the painter of the rough manner deliberately exposes the working processes to the spectator making him party to the artifice by which the illusion is achieved.
In his late works, the paint surfaces have the density of rock faces.

The smooth manner typically went along with more genteel and elegant themes.
Rounding was one of the cardinal concerns of renaissance and baroque easel painting.
Painters were advised to soften their contours of solid objects so they might subtly “melt” into the background, avoid placing the highest light outer edges of the illuminated sides of objects and to avoid outlining the outer edges with sharp black lines.
Unlike common fabrics, satin does not absorb and diffuse light rays in a more or less predictable manner, because more like a mirror it reflects the great part of the light which strikes its surface.
Strongly colored satin was probably worked up in monochrome or lightly colored shades of paint and then glazed with more richly colored paint producing an attractive gem-like quality.
The deepest shadows are full of complicated reflections, especially when the fabric is tightly bunched.
The half-tones of satin—half-tones are those crucial transitional tones that lie between the illuminated and shadowed sides of opaque, illuminated objects—must be drastically minimized; otherwise the fabric will not glimmer.
In the latter picture the long, unbroken fold that plunges from the figure’s left-hand knee to the floor appears wonderfully, but perhaps impossibly, straight.
Surprisingly, although pattern is largely victorious over chiaroscural modeling, neither the feel of the fabric nor the underlying anatomical forms which determine the its outer appearance are lost.
A color with more gray is considered less saturated, while a bright color, one with very little gray in it, is considered highly saturated.
Saturated colors are considered bolder and tied to emotions, while unsaturated ones are softer and less striking.
The idyllic world of the past as well as curious unusual or even ugly had become worthy of the painter’s attention.
However, “whether or not the painterly was used to describe an artist’s activities or his pictures, it was always used as a concept in connection with the artistic ambition to take one’s point of departure in reality, or at least portray the motif as it could appear in nature.

Tuck Everlasting By Natalie Babbitt Pages 1 by fliphtml5.com
It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.
One day at that time, not so very long ago, three things happened and at first there appeared to be no connection between them.
It wandered along in curves and easy angles, swayed off and up in a pleasant tangent to the top of a small hill, ambled down again between fringes of bee-hung clover, and then cut sidewise across a meadow.
It widened and seemed to pause, suggesting tranquil bovine picnics: slow chewing and thoughtful contemplation of the infinite.
And all at once the sun was uncomfortably hot, the dust oppressive, and the meager grass along its edges somewhat ragged and forlorn.
But the village doesn’t matter, except for the jailhouse and the gallows.
The house was so proud of itself that you wanted to make a lot of noise as you passed, and maybe even throw a rock or two.
And what is interesting, anyway, about a slim few acres of trees?
And that would have been a disaster so immense that this weary old earth, owned or not to its fiery core, would have trembled on its axis like a beetle on a pin.
He snored gently, and for a moment the corners of his mouth turned upward in a smile.
Mae sat there frowning, a great potato of a woman with a round, sensible face and calm brown eyes.
Mae sat on the edge of the bed and pulled on a pair of short leather boots so thin and soft with age it was a wonder they held together.
It was the one pretty thing she owned and she never went anywhere without it.
Then, last of all, she pulled down over her ears a blue straw hat with a drooping, exhausted brim.
She did this quickly and skillfully without a single glance in the mirror.
She knew very well what she would see in it; her reflection had long since ceased to interest her.
She had come out to the fence, very cross, very near the boiling point on a day that was itself near to boiling, and had noticed the toad at once.
The gnats were too frantic to notice these intrusions, however, and since every pebble missed its final mark, the toad continued to squat and grimace without so much as a twitch.
Something that would make some kind of difference in the world.
Do you know they’ve hardly ever let me out of this yard all by myself?
His tall body moved continuously; a foot tapped, a shoulder twitched.
But at the same time he had a kind of grace, like a well-handled marionette.
But his smile seemed perfectly all right, quite agreeable and friendly.
She says this was all trees once, just one big forest everywhere around, but it’s mostly all cut down now.
I be fit?
” she retorted, peering at him through the fading light.
It was a tinkling little melody, and in a few moments it stopped.
She pressed her wrinkled hands together, forgetting the man in the yellow suit.
But, before he could get an answer, it began again and they all stopped to listen.
Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone.

On the other side of the wood, the sense of easiness dissolved.
It became, instead, and rather abruptly, the property of people.
The first house only is important; the first house, the road, and the wood.
But the wood had a sleeping, otherworld appearance that made you want to speak in whispers.
Nothing ever seems interesting when it belongs to you—only when it doesn’t.
The people would have noticed the giant ash tree at the center of the wood, and then, in time, they’d have noticed the little spring bubbling up among its roots in spite of the pebbles piled there to conceal it.
He was still asleep, and the melancholy creases that folded his daytime face were smoothed and slack.
Then she stood and took from the washstand beside the bed a little square-shaped object, a music box painted with roses and lilies of the valley.
But, before she put on the hat, she brushed her gray-brown hair and wound it into a bun at the back of her neck.
It was the only living thing in sight except for a stationary cloud of hysterical gnats suspended in the heat above the road.
It missed altogether, as she’d fully intended it should, but she made a game of it anyway, tossing pebbles at such an angle that they passed through the gnat cloud on their way to the toad.
In either case, it gave her not a glance when at last she ran out of pebbles and sat down to tell it her troubles.
It’d be nice to have a new name, to start with, one that’s not all worn out from being called so much.
It gave a heave of muscles and plopped its heavy mudball of a body a few inches farther away from her.

She stood up, brushing at her legs where bits of itchy grass clung to her stockings.
Winnie was once again in the yard, this time intent on catching fireflies, and at first she didn’t notice him.
His long chin faded off into a thin, apologetic beard, but his suit was a jaunty yellow that seemed to glow a little in the fading light.
Indeed, he seemed almost to hang suspended there in the twilight.
His yellow suit seemed to surprise her, and she squinted suspiciously.
And this is the first time you’ve ever heard it, isn’t it?
This time it tinkled its way faintly through the little melody three times before it faded.
But the man in the yellow suit stood tapping his foot in the road for a long time all alone, looking at the wood.
