An example of the type of step study that will be featured in my new book, "Mondays with Camille" and Everything Else you Didn't Learn in Art School about Color," due out November 2013.
It was a rainy day, so I did this demonstration for my Monday class in the studio under artificial light. I overstated the warmth of the light planes and then eventually added color to them to bring them closer to the actual color of the objects. I also started seeing the transition colors from the shadow to the light on each object. In Step One, please note that I started the blue cloth in light with a warm color, and eventually added blue to it. I couldn't start with a blue because I chose that color for the white bowl in shadow.
