Ne­go­ti­ate with green

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Green is the trick­i­est colour to paint. It can eas­ily swing towards gar­ish, or ap­pear life­less. I’ve failed to cap­ture the tem­per­a­tures of the grass here so far. I sim­plify shapes, add a richer mid­dle tone be­tween ar­eas of shadow and light, and tint a bit of com­ple­men­tary red into the grass layer to re­duce its in­ten­sity. Oil pain­ters call this ap­proach “smug­gling reds”.
