Working With Greens Again
This morning I wanted to work with greens again, in acrylics. I used Pthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Dioxazine Purple, Burnt Sienna, Indian Yellow, Cad. Yellow Medium, and Raw Sienna to mix the greens . I wanted to see what these different mixtures would look like once the paint dried, as acrylics dry darker. I'm striving for realistic looking greens - sometimes I get it, sometimes not. This unfinished study is from my imagination but areas like this can actually be found in this area on any dirt road.
