My favourite colour is green, all shades, dark and light. So here in winter, when the trees are bare and the skies often grey like this… … I like to look forward to August when the valley looks like this…
My antidote to this outbreak of SAD was to get out my watercolours, something I don’t do often enough. I spent a happy morning mixing tones of green, brown and blue, working my way along the tiny tablets of colour, combining tones which mirror the summer hillside. Viridian, Sap Green, Winsor Emerald, Cobalt Green, Oxide of Chromium.The deepest definition between the greens comes when the shadows are deepest, so the sun highlights the yellow tones and shade highlights the blue.
