"Greens in Purple" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

I have restarted my small daily painting again. recalling what I did before my Melbourne workshop, I was working on high key colors. With this painting, I worked on the color of green. Due to my limited experience with green colors, I have found that it is very difficult to obtain good greens by mixing blue and yellow. To get high chroma greens, I have to put more green paints on my palette. On this painting, I have used viridian (Rembrandt), cadmium green pale (W&N), yellowish green (Van Gogh), and Shiva yellow citron (Richeson Oils), plus phthalo blue and yellows. I have more green pigment I will test. Eventually, I will put my green issues under control. BTW this painting is 6"x8". I haven't done this size paintings for a long time.

Mmm, beautiful as always, no matter what color you use. Your lights and dark and expressive strokes are always consistent and 'you'. :)
