I had a request for a painting of black eyed susans and ran across a photograph I had taken over the summer of these flowers so I thought it would be a good idea to play with the colors a bit. Green is a difficult color to work with, I think. In this painting I didn't want the green too bright or too much like a grass green. I ended up adding some winsor violet to my sap green to get a darker hue. In error, I added a bit of hooker's green and was quick to decide it didn't suit the painting.
I'd love to hear other artists' experience with greens.....do you use colors straight from the tube or do you mix colors to get your greens?
