Usage examples for deepen
The reply was: " As the light fades and the shadows deepen all the petty and exacting details vanish; everything trivial disappears, and I see things as they are, in great, strong masses; the buttons are lost, but the garment remains; the garment is lost, but the sitter remains; the sitter is lost, but the shadow remains; the shadow is lost, but the picture remains. – Whistler Stories by Don C.
