I've actually just gotten involved & interested in lighting design over the past few months, and am presently working in a small black box space. We're putting on a playwrights festival that requires a fairly flexible/non specific lighting plot (each show is fairly different in tone and styel- musica/drama/comedy), yet at the same time, I still want to provide some light colors in the general wash that will provide some decent modeling as well. My question then would be what the general wisdom would be regarding downlights and crosslights (I'm not sure if crosslight would be quite the right term, but since they're from the side and elevated, that'd be a more adequate description than sidelight). My front cover right now consists of Misty Blue R61 and No Color Straw R06, with crosslights in Bastard Amber R02. Still something about this doesn't look quite right, and I thought perhaps it may be better to use R61 and R02 as the front, with the lighter warm color R06 as a downlight instead, giving some highlight to actors heads & shoulders. I'll of course fool around with it a bit and see what works, I just wanted to see what general thoughts or advice anyone may have. I've done a number of readings on my own, but want to gain as much info as I can. Thanks!
