: pictorial representation in terms of light and shade without regard to color
: the arrangement or treatment of light and dark parts in a pictorial work of art
: the interplay or contrast of dissimilar qualities (as of mood or character)
I encountered this word in today’s course. I really like those arts with chiaroscuro, the light effect appears mystery, gives visualization with a dark fantasy color world. Perhaps I’ll use chiaroscuro in some of my future art pieces, so this is a very meaningful vocabulary for me to memorize.
