The difficult part was the large areas of white that make up the woodwork and structure of the dome. In a painting, white objects are rarely pure white; a white object is influenced by all of the colors around it. If it’s in shadow then it’s illuminated by the light from the sky, which is why shadows often appear slightly blue.
