MORNING LIGHT MT NEBO

It's taken me a couple of years to build up to this painting. Each time I'd look at the reference photo I'd think about someday tackling it. I finally did it.  (Also, the yellows in the original are much cooler than in this photo.   15" x 22")

You are the expert as using greens, as I mentioned in my most recent blog.

Thanks, lolly-jolly, Barbra, and Jean. Jean, you might try Daniel Smith's Hookers Green. It's a cool emerald green-- in my opinion too pretty to use straight from the tube-- that seems to mix well with the likes of Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna, and many of the yellows. I use M Graham Hookers Green because it closely approximates the desert foliage I paint, but some painters don't like it because it tends to leave a somewhat "muddy" residue after it dries. All I can say further is to continue your diligent experimentation with GREEN.
