Milk or Lemon in Your Tea?
Milk or Lemon in your Tea?
8x6in oil on canvas panel SOLD
Still on the lemons. I had a couple of requests to see more of my dishes
so I thought this would be a fun way to show them.
The color temperature of the light bulb - in this case warm, dictates the
colors of the shadow.
Warm light, cool shadow and cool light, warm shadows.
It really did make an aqua shade on the creamer.
My question is...I think of aqua
as a warm blue. Do you? Should I have painted a cool blue
even though it looked aqua and warm?
With paint, everything is relative to what it is next to and
the aqua is certainly cooler than the colored rim.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
