I made these two studies, because I wanted to analyse something that has very little colour itself, but at the same time has a lot of potential in the way it catches light. Each study represents a different approach. I made the first one using the whole palette of colours and then the second one with the use of a very limited palette. I must say that the second one was much more challenging and I really learned a lot from it. But I like both of them. It's amazing how many shades light can create on things that seem white or grey at first sight.
