Painting Tips: Summer Scene in Green

I have been painting in oils for over thirty years, have shown my work in many galleries in Mass. and RI., thought I would like to make a suggestion to the artists that feel insecure about painting a summer scene with a lot of green. Yes, it can be difficult but by using a warm under-painting, like red or orange, you can keep the green warm because the under-painting will keep coming through.

For those that don't know how, try using a combination of red and a touch of white painted very thinly with turpentine or try orange and white using the same method. This combination has a wonderful way of coming through and keeping the green warm.

Remember that to keep this a successful scene to add something red (such as a bush with red berries, flowers, a boat) anyway, you get the message. Keep it fun because painting is a wonderful therapy and you can never feel bored or lack for something to do.

Have fun, experiment and most of all don't be afraid to try it. If you don't like what you have done you can always wipe it down or paint over it.
