Exercises in lightning using a Caravaggio painting

 I took some images from the web to practice about how I could enlighten a painting which has a sidelight illuminarion and a dark background, to get a sensation of open place. Well, there is more much to practice but is interesting to see how it works out in a tenebrist scene in a work of Caravaggio. These are just little visual games that you can do to learn how much do you understand light and what stilly ou need to learn. As we can see here, my rendering was quite unveritable and not really convincing, but nevertheless it helped me in finishing the painting I was doing at the time. I think so.
