We are looking at more ways that nature moves between the two extremes of warm vs cool.

Hi Marco, thank you so much for the course. In this chapter, you really helped me understand how to transition from one color to another, even though they can be complementary to each other. I learned to use a more neutral tone to bridge two colors and transition from warm to cool, or cool to warm. This principle appeared the most on the cliff that had reflective light, which appear to be blue, although this was a warm color study. I wouldn't have understood this without this chapter, thanks again. All critiques are welcome.

I've only watched to chapter 3b but I love this course so much. I've always enjoyed your youtube stuff and I gotta say this works really well even with the longer lessons.

Hi, these exaples are great to learn, but i dont realy understand how can I study this principles. Should i do this by studying from photo refrences, or using my emagination to combine different colours. How your students in real class do this? BTW thanks for a great colour understanding explonation, as a begginer in colour theory, that grants me so much viable information!)

I've found the colour studies like in chapter 2b to be a nice way to study this. E.g. Identifying light vs shadow areas, which ones are warm vs cool, finding the local colours, then experiment by pushing them warmer/colder in various directions as shown in the video here. Do lots of them.

Bucci says a few times in the lessons that there is no real 'right' or 'wrong', and these studies are more about exploring what's possible/what works. The rule of thumb he's using here is: start with the local colour (green on the monster), and push she shadow colours colder for the parts facing the cold blue sky, and push them warmer for the parts facing the warm light reflected off the ground.
