Experimentation with sculpture and shadow casting.

After playing around with mixing colour pigment I realised that I was seeing so many whites due to the amount of light that was being reflected from the surface. Here I have played around with shape and how light and shadow create the boundaries of the form. On the white cones especially, the outside of the cone appears lighter and the inside darker, the base also looks darker in comparison to the background. However I then painted the outer side black and the inner side grey, knowing that the inner side reflects less light already I thought that painting the inside a lighter shade may look the inside and outside look the same colour. In a few of the photographs this looks like it has worked. The idea of mixing colours to be the same but under different light conditions could be a next step into my painting practice.
