"Chiaroscuro" (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊər/Italian: [kjarosˈkuːro] "light-dark") in art is characterized by strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for using contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modeling three-dimensional objects such as the human body.

I am adding some chiaroscuro today in some of my nearly completed paintings from my life in Morocco. Now, it is time to catch a nice walk around the lake area before the sun slips away for another night.
