Sorry to make a whole thread dedicated to this, but I've been googling around and can't find anything that matches what I'm looking for.
I'm working on a painting where the subject is lit from the viewpoint, for example by a flashlight or a camera flash (Preferrably a flashlight). This is going to be the only light source, as I'm going for a bit of a spooky feeling. So I'm looking for references. Yes, I know I can look at photographs for reference as well, but I would really like to see how other artists have tackled this. It just feels really hard to convey form with only one hard light source from the front.
I reckon the reason they're so hard to come across is that frontally lit paintings are often frowned upon in favor of more dynamic lighting.
So any creepy camera flash/flashlight paintings? Lets have em!
