Did You Know? (Chiaroscuro)

Chiaroscuro is an effect, in painting or drawing, which involves the use of very dark and very light colors to create contrasts. Highly appreciated in particular by Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Velázquez, and Giorgione, this process enables the various tones to give more relief and depth to the work.
