Escape Routes

I also refer to this technique as "leaky light." The idea is to not box in shapes, but to connect them by letting passages of light flow from one area into another. The flow of light keeps edges from getting too hard, especially at the edges and bottoms of buildings, and also tends to direct the eye around the painting.

In this example, you can trace the path of light throughout the painting.
