Color may be the foundation of all art, but it is light, shade, and tone that bring a painting to life. Tone may have a variety of interpretations in art. How we perceive the tone of an object depends on its actual surface lightness or darkness, color and texture, the background and lighting. Generally, however, artists consider tone as the way a light source varies through shades of gray to the deepest black shadows. Wyland uses tone for dramatic effect as he follows the subtle changes of light along a pristine river hidden within the Rocky Mountains.
