Lesson No.5 - Painting Warm Light and Cool Shadows

This lesson was all about shadow.  The left side of the building was in shadow away from the warm sunlight.  We painted in soft purple hues with no hard edges.  Remember, shadow can still be colourful and detailed - just keep it soft and muted.  I like to mix a Ultramarine Blue with Cadmium Red and add that mix to the colour I want in shade.  This helps to grey it off so you don't have bright colours.
