@Curator A general rule of thumb:
If you have a warm light, you have a cool shadow. The shadow can often be the complimentary colour of your light. And vice versa for both of these.
You have warm yellow sunlight? 💛 Try a cool, purple shadow! 💜
Cool, blueish light? 💙 Try a warmer, orangey shadow. 🧡
This isn't a hard and fast rule, but it can really help break out of the shadow=black idea and give more depth to your shading. ☺️
@Rheall I am struggling in remembering to use complimentary colours for shadows and lights. But very cool advice. ✌🏻
@Rheall someone told me this years ago before i was doing much work in colour and it was hugely helpful
