This paper presents my views on the subject of shadow and its interpretative use as it may pertain to drawing. The factors upon which shadow is dependent are discussed as well as shadow as form and image.

Also discussed is the development of shadow as it became an important concept and reality to me and how it pertains to my drawings.

It has been recommended to further develop the use of shadow in my work as it relates to space and the illusion of space.
