In this collection of lessons we will study the of light on color while painting a night scene. Throughout the process of painting this color concept, we’ll focus on various aspects of light and color at night. After we’ve spent a little time setting up or composition, we’ll get things started by choosing the colors for the sky in our image. Here we’ll learn why colors change so much at night. We’ll also learn about choosing both key and fill lights for our scene. Some of the other topics we will address while working through this painting are things like atmospheric perspective, reflected light, cast shadows and form shadows as well as the interaction between colored lights. After completing this course, you should have a better idea of how to choose color for a night time image.
