Highlight
In art, the term highlight refers the area of an object where the light effects is most intense. The term highlight is also used in photography and cinematography. In painting the highlight of an object should not be pure white as it should contain some of the local colour of the object. White highlights refer to pure reflected light as for example occur on a metal object, but do not occur on or are reflected from coloured glass.
