The Purkinje Effect Revisited
The Conversation Oil John Hulsey
Have you ever noticed how the colors of objects look so radically different in the very low light just before dawn or twilight? Take a red rose, for instance. We know that the flowers are bright red against the green of the leaves in daylight. But, take a look at dusk and you will see that suddenly the contrast is reversed, with the red flower petals now appearing a dark red or dark warm gray, and the leaves appearing relatively bright.
If you would like to learn more about making a Nocturne painting, take one of our live and interactive online painting workshops. Watch a live demonstration, ask questions and paint along with us as we show you how. More info at: www.theartistsroadstore.com/workshops. See you there!
