Study in Green 6"x6" oil

Here is the second one in my Study of Color series.   Inspired by Liz Wiltzen's blog post about using vivid color to flex your value muscle, I painted a second one using all green.    The palette I used was Titanium white, lemon yellow, Cad yellow medium,  Cad red light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine blue, Thalo blue and Burnt Sienna (Winsor Newton).   I believe you can achieve great greens by mixing from yellows and blues and in fact get a better variety.   However looking at this now it looks like I used sap green... go figure.

On the left is a b&w photo of the painting and on the right is the b&w photo of the setup.   So you can see the comparison.

This is lovely and not something I have ever tried. I am sure it makes one a better painter and something that should be put on the bucket list. You are really good, Claudia. I love your blog.
