We are exploring the effects of light on color. We have a quick refresher of how color relates to value. Through the use of a limited palette and a full palette, we explore how color responds to different light sources. What happens to color under a strong light source? What happens to color under a more subdued light source? We will practice fine-tuning our observation skills and discern color relationships and color properties. See some video stills here.
