When is green not 'green'?some possible suggestions:1)use a limited palette2)concentrate on the values first3) read *behind* the green (i.e. the purple-y stuff under the grass, the bluer greens (possibly lighter too) in the distance, which I think you actually really nailed.Maybe the grass shouldn't be so, so green. maybe yellower/grayer? You were there, we weren't, and I LOVE the distant view! Stop being so harsh on yourself!
thanks Kelly- I really appreciate this comment!
Ha! One of my students last night painted her sky a peachy orange because she wanted "something to warm up all the green" And it worked! Also, someone told me once to always add a little red to your greens, because that's what's there! Really!
