Thank you so very much Nolan! This is the building block of painting in colors. I struggled with the shadows and you rightly pointed out, we never actually pay attention to them and therefore have no clue how to envision them, without shadows I don\’t think we can create depth or character. This is an extremely useful video. After making this color wheel myself I was glad that I didn\’t buy a color wheel off the shelf, not because they are expensive, but because I would never have been able to appreciate shadows at all. Thank you, you are an awesome coach!!! Cheers, D!
