"The Present with Red" 6" x 6" oil

This set up was a box tied with a white satin bow set on top of a white tablecloth.   Even though the cloth was white the brightest thing was the shine on the satin bow so I had to make the tablecloth less white.   Actually the cloth was a warm white so I added some yellow and red to the white.  I could have made it grayer or more blue but the shadows have that hue.  So there you have it, the story of the box.
