Day 13 – Chiaroscuro


Day13 30faces Chiaroscuro2I’m not sure I hit the mark on this one, but I gave it my best shot in the short amount of time I had. Yes, it is getting harder to keep up with doing a new face every day. Will I make it to Day 30?

So, what is chiaroscuro? Here is the Wiki explanation:

Chiaroscuro (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊər/Italian: [ˌkjaroˈskuːro]Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures.[1] Similar effects in cinema and photography also are called chiaroscuro.

Hopefully, I will be back tomorrow.
