I decided the other day to finally face my fears in face the great complicated monster called green colour, and try still life. God knows I really hate both and both frustrate hell out of me. Green is like this ellusive beast difficult to tame, I always get it wrong no matter what I do... so 3 pears on table instead in juicer pencil and some acrylics. A while later I finally got shapes right and shadows with burnt umber and then green came YIKES!!!! what a nightmare no beginning or end. I could not get it right for life of me - the pear on the far right. I went over it with white numerous times, had white and green all over me and could not get it right for life of me. I cannot master the beast. Tried adding blue and yellow and using burnt sienna and red iron oxide and it went nowhere. I went to toilet with half of my hair missing and there were little hands all over my painting - God bless Stella my charming 2 year terror-naught. I love her to bits but I think she had enough of me stressing and pulling my hair out over green. This is the result. I kinda like it will frame it for her room. Its first time she grabbed my acrylic paints lol. Now she cant have enough she has part of my drafting board allocated to her where she has fun while i paint and she is being potty trained.
