One Of The Things

an artist does are color mixing studies. Here I am mixing different shades of yellow and blue acrylics to see what shades of green can be made. My goal is to find good mixtures for natural looking landscape greens. Greens range from a yellowy green to a reddish green and then there are greens that lean toward a blue. I often add purple, or burnt sienna or orange into the green mixtures. These charts are kept for easy reference when looking for a certain green.

More painting today. I have to fix a scratch on a landscape and may decide to enter it in another art show this Friday.
