So are you ready for silhouettes or maybe some cool shadows??
Here are a few of mine and some fun facts about silhouettes.
My pepper tree silhouette.
Silhouette definition: A dark shape seen against a light back round.
Number Two: Doberman
Before the age of the photograph, the silhouette was cut from paper or painted, and was the most affordable portrait that could be made. During the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century many people collected them.
Number Three: Man at the bay.
The man whom the name came from: Etienne de Silhouette was France’s finance minister under Louis XV and was notorious for both his frugality and his hobby of making cut-paper shadow portraits.
Number 4: Dogs and kids
The phrase, a la Silhouette came to mean “on the cheap”.
Have fun with this Challenge!
