9th Lesson - Greek Steps

Well, we finished off our cats (we all had different cats to paint).  The light is so strong and has strong shadows and highlights.  Do the highlights in a light orange to yellow colour first before dabbing on a bit of pure white for those final touches.  Remember that the shadows against a strong highlight tend to have more intense colour and are darker, then gradually lighten up away from the shadow.  Therefore, in this case, you have your highlight at the edge, then strong dark orange shadow, then a lighter less intense, purple-orange as you paint away from the edge.
