A quick painting to celebrate the ‘greenness’ of the landscape as it is at the moment. The problem with this is the monotonous ’40 shades of green’ or more like the 40 million shades of green. In nature the richness of green is great but in a painting its boring.
I try and include, in the painting, the colours which make green (blue and yellow) and let them visually mix – a method used by the Impressionists. This produces a vibrant green scene without the monotony of a single colour.
The actual paint colours used were Cadmium Yellow, Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue plus black and white. There is no medium used, only White Spirits.
Here’s the video, see you soon.
