Everyone has a favorite color. Everyone has a color they hate. Guess my least favorite color to try and work with. YUP, Green. I buy green in tubes and when I squeeze them out, I think to myself, no way this looks natural. But, if I mix a green myself using anything but green, I find it actually grows on me after a bit. The two bottom leaves (blobs at this point) are out of the tube green. The two above were made using Cobalt Blue, Yellow Ochre and some Cadmium Scarlet. OH and a bit of white to lighten in spots. If I force myself to continue and ignore the color, looking for light and shadow, I finally get to a point where I just may be happy with what I have painted. What's your nemesis color?
