This set up was a box tied with a white satin bow set on top of a white tablecloth. Even though the cloth was white the brightest thing was the shine on the satin bow so I had to make the tablecloth less white. Actually the cloth was a warm white so I added some yellow and red to the white. I could have made it grayer or more blue but the shadows have that hue. So there you have it, the story of the box.
