Painted from a photo I took in Colorado
a few years ago.
I felt like using some
spring green color with a palette knife.
My green mixtures were made from
Hansa Yellow - Turquoise - a touch of light pink.
Naples or Yellow Ochre and Ultramarine Blue Deep
I mix my deep U Blue with a bit of white to bring it up to
the same value as the yellow ochre before mixing together.
Green has always been a difficult color for me
so I did a lot of exercises to try to learn to control it.
The one thing I found important was to have
a little pile of pink mixed from
any Rose or Permanent Alizarin,
in three values - light/med/dark - to add
to the matching value mixture needed.
Talking of trees...
One of our sons has started to make these
wonderful trees as a hobby.
He has always been a creative thinker
enjoying unique skills at problem solving.
We are now also very proud of his artistic talent.
