Re: Still Life with Toys
great studies indeed
do you have a color wheel?
buy one, make one, get one
shadow colors are important and are the only issue i have with your pieces
yellow background pieces *should* have purple tinted shadows (not blue, or green)
blue/green background pieces *should* have orange/red tinted shadows (not darker blue or grey).
same thing applies to the shadows on the actual subjects, but it's most noticeably off on the 'ground' in these pieces.
looking at a color wheel - any color directly opposite a color is the appropriate color to mix with to use for shadows
eg. red = green, blue = orange, yellow = purple
delicious 'browns' come of these mixes.
a final thought on shadows - they're see through, not solid, always = )
