What Is Chiaroscuro Art?

Chiaroscuro art uses the artist’s knowledge and command of the way light hits an object to bring that object to life by giving it dimension or depth. What better modern technique of Chiaroscuro lighting could there be than that of the Painter of Light himself? Thomas Kinkade paintings are well-known and sought-after for the life, breadth, and fine detail accomplished by this finite attention to lighting.

Lady Liberty appears to leap out from a sunset background in Dedicated To Liberty. You almost want to lean over and examine the lifelike sundial in The Hour of Prayer. Can you hear the water tumbling down the rocks studding a stream in Away From It All?

Dappled Sunsets & Streams

Glowing sunlight scatters through the boughs of colorful tree branches to warm patches of cottage lawns and the brick of buildings and bridges alike. You can’t help feeling warm around these picturesque scenes. Chiaroscuro paintings take canvas artworks and transform them into living works of art.

The Grungy Nightlife Of The Big City

When you combine Chiaroscuro lighting with crowded cities and busy streets, you get a vivid, graphic effect. The suggestion of layer upon layer of depth draws you in and makes you want to explore every corner of New York City, San Francisco, and our own Monterey. Buzzing neon lights and wheels whooshing through rain-washed streets await as the sun goes down and the street lights come on in these shadowy cityscapes.
