Birgit asked if anyone employed a strongly contrasting treatment between the illuminated and the shadowed side of an object as seen in Morandi’s late painting. I’ve been tripping over a painting, that I did a few years ago, that might fill the bill.

It’s a relic of a brief fascination that I had with graffiti cut into the bark of trees.¬† In this case I followed the dictates of my camera in b/w mode. I projected the image onto plywood and created a relief effect in the darks. The camera saw no distinction in value on the lit side and I did the same. Birgit, does this simple example qualify?
