Thanks Judy. This scene has a massive amount of green trees, so I am looking forward to the lessons learned!

One trick someone taught me about greens, is to use a glaze of quinacridone (spelling??)gold over the green and it will help harmonize the painting and tone down the (his words) garishness of the greens.

It really works well. The paint is pretty expensive though. I believe it is Holbein Duo that I have.

This painting started off being just the wash background, but I got messing around with the paint and wanted to keep going. So it is more than where I intended to stop, but a soft image, which is unusual for me. Maybe I can keep a lot more soft and lost edges in this one...

I'm really watching this one - green is my favorite color but so hard to use in a painting. I think you're off to a good start.

Hi Alan
Great start. I can relate to a background like that. You might have a look at the paintings of William Russell Flint, especially 'A ford on the Baise'. His miniscule variations on the greens are mindblowing. At least I think so.
Looking forward to seeing the progress.

Another suggestion I've gotten from one of my art teachers is to add a little yellow ochre or burnt sienna to the greens to tone them down if you need to.

Jack, thanks for introducing me to the paintings of William Russell Flint. It always excites me to see a 'new' painter's work, and his is amazing. I have not found a visual for A Ford On The Baise yet, but his figure work is so excellent.

Judy, I am filing away your tips for when I can get back to the painting. It will be a grand adventure for sure. There will be yellow ochre in this one, I reckon.
