Painting white things is really fun and challenging.  For this painting, I placed a white rabbit stuffed animal in a white box, and lit it from two sides: one a warm light, which casts a cool shadow, and one a cool light, which casts a warm shadow.  So in this white on white painting, the colors come mostly from the shadows cast by the lights.

I enjoyed this challenge so much, that I’m planning more work featuring “The Woobie,” as well as more white on white paintings.  Luckily, the Woobie has a little family, so they could keep me busy for awhile.

When you have to draw from nature, stand three times as far away as the size of the object you are drawing.
