For those interested in my studies of greens and visual complements, here are the latest in the series of experimental works surrounding green. The color green is the most difficult to handle in art because it can pass through a near rainbow of shades and still retain its identity as “green”. There are orange-greens (or brown-greens), blue-greens, yellow-greens, grey-greens. The next step in my work is to eventually pair these color palettes with the figure. However, I am really encouraged by the progress in these studies. I offer them for your enjoyment!
