(280) This shadow results from a steel sculpture created by Kentucky artist Donnie Firkins. To see more shadow shots, please visit Hey Harriet!
The photo is an excellent reminder in how to paint shadows because it is easy to see that they appear darker with a harder edge the closer they are to the object casting the shadow. Then they transition to lighter values with softer edges as they move further away from the object.
