The highlight is the light hitting an object, opposite of shadow, shows the direction of the light, and comes from the same direction no matter where the viewer is located.

Human peripheral vision perceives shape, but weakly, and is sensitive to movement. When the viewer looks at Mona Lisa's eyes, the shape of the corners of the upper lip in peripheral vision appear upturned in a smile. But when the viewer looks directly at the whole mouth, there is no smile represented. Thus her enigmatic smile.  myb

The cones in human eyes perceive color in dim light, so shadows, to look natural, must be made of dark colors, not black-gray. Black paint added to another color becomes too gray to appear real. However, when in a very dark room or out at night, humans cannot see light because the cones in human eyes do not function when it is very dark. Rods do function then, but do not perceive color.

How to use a reference photo for a painting. The camera may not be good at capturing middle distance; objects may look far away. Take additional close ups. Blow up photo as large as possible for detail. Identify the focal point when you take the photo, thinking of darkest darks, lightest lights. Gray day ok; artist can add light. Print a black and white copy for tones. Do not use a slick professional portrait photo without contrast areas. Photos do not capture true tone, hue, light, or…
