Here I am again back on the island of Jersey ... somewhere in the countryside.
via Google Street View for Bill Guffeys Virtual Paintout challenge.
I remember as a beginner painter how afraid I was mixing the color green. I met others who also had the same fear... chlorophobia or greenophobia ... and remember -"NEVER USE GREEN OUT OF THE TUBE!" Of course as a beginner, adding white to green always resulted in chalky paintings.
As a mature painter working outdoors, one notices the subtle differences of all the greens. The warms greens (adding yellow) against the cool blue greens (adding blue), a dab of red here and orange there...the distant blue green trees on the horizon.
Charles Movalli, my painting teacher, used to start a painting of trees in a field with a red violet under painting, laying the different colors of greens over the red violet color, resulting in some interesting colors.
