Artist John Lidzey's work takes the ordinary, and transforms it to extraordinary with his use of light and shadow contrasts. In his video workshop, Light in Watercolor (http://artistsnetwork.tv/p-270-light-in-watercolor-with-john-lidzey.aspx) (playing now on artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv)) he'll show you how to paint light's effects and how to use tone and color, and he'll help you understand how light behaves and gives strength to a composition. Follow John's teaching, step by step, to create beautiful, moody paintings that come to life with light.

In this preview follow along with John as he develops shadows to create the feeling of strong light streaming in from the background of this scene.
