Work in Progress- Little Blue Sake Pitcher

With eggs! I started this piece today with the idea that I have painted the eggs on pink, and on green. So now I will paint them to see the effects of a blue environment.

I usually use a warm light (which makes the shadows relatively cooler), but today I am using a blue filter I bought from Qiang-Huang, a daily painter who sells the filters on his blog. It simulates north light which is a cooler light. When your light is cooler, the shadows are relatively warmer.

Just a different way of seeing and it will be a bit of a challenge to not pick up my usual colors for shadows.

My work from today.......just getting colors and values blocked in.
