||Fig. 10-1 The pottery goblet on the far
left shows how this particular piece would look when translated into the achromatic
values of Part One. The other three goblets represent different light conditions,
painted with only the blue and orange complements of Color Lesson 4.
A warm light hits the goblet on the left, causing it to cast a cool shadow.
The middle goblet languishes in a neutral kind of twilight and has cast no shadow to
speak of. The right-hand goblet shows the influence of cool daylight and therefore
has a softer value modulation and warm cast shadow.
colors for this lesson were black and white and couple of yellows
|Still-Life Setup. I've
chosen a glass jar with split peas, a dark green bottle, and a vase with dried weeds plus
yellow squash, two lemons and an apple.
Step 5. I've revised the background completely in this
finished painting because the contrast between the dark bottle and the light background
was too eye-catching. This softer gradation, going from a gray to an olive brown,
works well against the beige weeds and the green bottle.
