"A Still-Life Study in Green"

"A Still-Life Study in Green" 8"x10" Oil on CanvasBoard sold

What a great exercise in developing greens using a limited palette without making the image flat or boring green. This is a dilemma that artists might find themselves in when it comes to painting a landscape of lush green trees and grasses in the spring or summer. How does one paint such a thing without making the canvas nothing but a green mass? This was a lot more fun than I had anticipated and I really liked the way this little gem turned out.
