Hogarth demonstrates how a dark silhouette on white paper can communicate form and space. He then shows how the silhouette is transformed into three dimensions with the addition of highlights. There is a chapter devoted to each of the five basic categories of light and shade: single-source light- double-source light- flat, diffused light- moonlight- and sculptural light. Natural and artificial light sources are examined, and the effects of the five types of light on a variety of subjects - faces, figures, landscapes, still lifes - are illustrated. Hogarth also explains more complex light effects: how light and shade can create a sense of near and far- how light is affected by weather, time of day, and the changing seasons- how light reveals the surface qualities of forms- the effects of light passing through transparent materials like glass and water- and much more.
