Light Through Water

I used a picture I took of a close-up shot of the fountain outside the dining hall around 1 p.m. I did a value drawing to show where the sunlight hit the water most directly as well as the darker areas caused by the area of shade underneath the cascade of water.  In my model, canary trash paper shows how the concrete underneath the fountain is revealed subtly by the light through the waterfall. Black paper shows the darkest shadows directly above the reflecting line (cellophane), while vellum on top of white parchment illustrates how the water beneath the reflection of the sun is illuminated as the shadows become more and more concealed. The curve of the paper mimics the curve of the water in the fountain.
