White dogs are hard (black ones too). They usually come out too blue – or something. I am looking at cool light and warm shadows, so the blues are the lighter colors. Just read (again) about cool light in the Richard Schmidt book. Blinding flash of the obvious – since white will cool any color and it is the lightest and coolest color on the pallet, then cool highlights are “easier” to achieve than warm ones…. (this isn’t exactly what Richard said, it’s what I took from it and played with today).
