Light and Darkness: An Illustrated Guide to Shaded Drawing

Light and Darkness highlights the author’s extensive work as a sculptor in forming her work with positive and negative space as it relates to light and dark on a drawing surface. The work places its emphasis on metamorphosis, and this is frequently illustrated exquisitely with drawings in series.

Content is informed by intervals in music, the Christian festivals, the Zodiac, and process itself. Discussion includes meditative aspects of technique and specific details that can serve as a point of departure for creating one’s own work.

About the Author

Gertraud Goodwin was born in Germany in 1951. In her first career, she worked as an surgery nurse at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Her sculpture training at the Alanus-Kunsthochschule near Bonn (1976–1979) was followed by training in sculpture therapy. In 1982, she moved to England, where she taught at the Tobias School of Art in East Grinstead and at Emerson College, Forest Row, as well as working with graphics. In 1987 she started to teach sculpture and graphics in her own studio. Gertraud Goodwin has exhibited in galleries in London, Brighton, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland.
