Butter and Sugar Iris


Not all whites are the same.

There are warm whites, cool whites, off whites, and many, many other shades of white.

It can be difficult to paint these whites and to separate one from the other.

A general rule of thumb goes back to a post that I did earlier about warm and cool colors.

Warm colors come forward and cool colors recede.

With that thought in mind, add a bit of warmth to your white in an area that you want to come forward.

Add cool colors to the white that you want it to recede or move into the background.
