Painters Tip

Painting Greens

One of the most challenging subjects in color rendering is a scene with groups of trees and green grass. This looks all the same to an untrained eye.

It is lighter where the sun hits and darker in shadow. New growth is lighter and brighter. There is a world of variety in greens in any scene. You must learn to see and render these diverse shades of green, not only lighter and darker but more blue, gray, yellow, red and combinations in the same tree. Don’t forget the infinite value possibilities too.

Using these possibilities can make a typical boring scene come to life.

I live in Florida where everything is green, so learning to give greens life and zip is essential.
