Painting a rusty looking lamp in watercolors
Can you guess the colors I chose for this painting?
Do you know what helps me to put my color palette together?
It's the color wheel.
In this class, I will be sharing why I chose certain colors for the lamp, and what colors I chose for the shadows.
Shadows are very important and should be treated with the same attention as everything else in your painting.
Shadows should never be done in a hurry.
Do you know what colors to choose for natural looking shadows?
You first need to find a local color of your object, next you need to find a complementary color of that local color. Those will be the colors you want to use for the shadows.
Take this class if you like detailed artwork.
