#jennydohtips :: Painting Tip 11 :: Viridian

Painting Tip 11 :: Viridian

I do own a tube of Viridian green and I squeeze it out when I know for sure I will be using it in my paintings. But sometimes, I don't want to squeeze it out onto my palette because I'm not sure if I'll be using it. And sometimes, I don't want to take that tube with me when I'm teaching in the studio. (And sometimes I can't find the tube when my studio is extra messy!) In all such instances I end up mixing what I think is a very close Viridian, which is Cad Yellow Lemon + Ultramarine Blue. You can see in the photo the Viridian from the tube on the right and the mixed version on the left. And then you can see both versions desaturated with a bit of white. Pretty darn close.

Tip Jar
I really enjoy sharing my painting tips and other assorted creative tips, ideas, informational links, etc. They reflect lots of research as well as insights gained through experience. I've been sharing them on IG and Facebook but I will be archiving them here on my blog as well. If you have a topic that you'd like me to provide a tip on, please email me with your requests at jenny@crescendoh.com. And also if you want to, you are invited to leave me a tip as a thank-you for any benefit you might derive from what I joyfully share. Thank you. :-)
