A simple way to deal with highlights and reflected light. Wherever you place the highlight, the reflected light is directly opposite. This is a good place to start to help grasp the idea.

Project 3: Silhouettes – simplest essence of form. Highlight – most minimal light possible. Reflected light – most minimal light possible. In-class: Draw as many silhouette heads as you can and match highlight and reflective light to the form. Reflected light is ambient light that bounces around in the environment that surrounds the form. You can usually find reflected light positioned opposite the highlight but exceptions to this rule can occur.
