Color Studies

Here, as promised but late, are two color studies along with photos of their set-ups from a book by Arthur Stern, “How to See Color and Paint It.” These are great exercises in seeing actual color spots instead of just assuming what color something is. One of the points in the box one is that the white top of the box in the right lighting can look darker than the black on the front of the box.

Right now I’m working on another one of five oranges and I’ve used just about every possible variation of orange possible. I’ll post that one next.
