It’s Green Again!

My world is bursting with green! Green fields, green leaves and green grasses greet me everywhere. But have you noticed the greens aren’t all the same? Look closely and you’ll see what artists call sap green, which is green with more yellow in it, and emerald green and cobalt green and the list goes on and on. As my oak trees began to leaf out I saw olive green in their leaves. The cedar trees have a ting of blue in their green foliage. Green, of course, is the mixture of the primary colors of blue and yellow, but those colors can be mixed in a variety of ways. And, depending on where you live, in a cold, warm, dry or humid climate, the greens will be different. It’s a challenge for artists to try to capture all the colorful hues they see in nature. I say a challenge; it’s impossible to accurately put on canvas all the variations of color God created. He is the greatest artist and he loves variety!
