GaGa over Green

Just finished my first workshop titled "going green" at the Holbein art event. Had a great group of ladies and all worked hard with limited pigments and a limited subject. The objective was mixing your greens either on your palette or your paper letting watercolor do it's magic. This is a painting that consists of many different greens that were handled just that way...lemon-greens, grey-greens, blue-greens..etc..etc.. 22"x15" We worked from a picture of a primarily green still life set up..also had some real still life subjects in the room..not easy.

Agree, green can be very tricky. Your artwork is amazing. Fresh and pretty! I love gradual movement from lights in front to darks on the back. Great Job Annelein. Thanks, Irina

Easy or not, I think it's lovely. It's good to challenge yourself every so often. Wakes up the senses!

Greens are always hard, I think, but these all look great, Annelein. Sounds like it was a great class.
