Today's session was a high key painting. I mentioned before that I struggle with white. It is a hard color for me to deal with. Maybe that is why I don't like painting high key paintings because there is always some light color involved.

Today while working on this study I learned that white looks white when I keep shadows cool and lights warm. If my lights don't have enough warmth the subject looks dead, not convincing, so adding some yellow ochre and cadmium yellow light made my onions more alive.
