A Study of Greens
Trying out different ways of making green. I think that all greens in tubes look like green paint so I only have two and rarely use them, mixing blues and yellows instead. I usually make my greens more yellow than they should be, like I did with the lawn here, because that's the way to get them to look sunlit and warm, which I think greens should be, even though greens are a rather cool color. I guess that's the main problem, the idea of green is summer and warm, but the color of green is cool. Anyways, I was just playing around to see if I could find a nice way to make a green I could use. Can't say I learned much.
