I read once that you shouldn't paint scenes with too much green. People don't like it or something. I think that's code for 'It doesn't go with the living room decor.' I also read once that you should paint what you love. I love green Indiana. So I'll keep painting green Indiana.
I mix all my greens myself. I like the ranges I can get with just a few favorite primaries. This piece of Virginia creeper climbing a pole was a good practice. [Prussian blue, aureolin, mission burnt sienna, alizarin crimson]. This was the last piece I did for the watercolor class I took last month. I had a wonderful time in the class, learned a lot and met some really great people.
