When I was younger, I thought light and dark were binary. It wasn’t until I became interested in photography that I learned that light has color. (Perhaps I was distracted during science class?) Living in the South, I have ample opportunity to observe the color of light: the joy of sunrise, sunset and amazing clouds in between.
Two of my favorite times to enjoy the light are late afternoon and just after it rains. As the sun sinks low in the sky it creates vibrant orange reflections on buildings and water. After it rains, the light is yellow-green. This effect is enhanced by trees and plants nearby.
My mother introduced me to the term “quality of light” and I understood that to mean color, intensity and uniqueness. I am both excited and daunted by the challenge of reflecting the majesty of color and light in fabric. Thank you Alicia.
