Look What Happens When You Buy A New Tube of Paint

So, we are still in the planning stage of heading out into America.  Praying for the economy to turn so we can make our "escape" but in the mean time working towards it by painting.

Greens have been a bug-a-boo to me but I recently asked a friend what he used to get his greens. He told me a few colors in oil but since I am teaching acrylic painting classes, I searched for similar color in that medium. I love Golden Open Acrylics and found Anthraquinone Blue. Dark blue when mixed with Cadmium Orange and a touch of Cadmium Yellow and voila!! A whole range of greens.

I started this painting in class then took it to my studio to finish and frame.  There is farmland in Viera near the wetlands and this was a scene from there. Quiet, secluded. The trail there leads to tributary of the St. John's River.
