I finished, I finished!!
Same size as the other one, 4.5 x 18 inches.
Now let's see if I can squeak out one more before the show.

Kim, great work! You nailed all those intense greens, but I'm most impressed by a tiny detail that makes this so perfect -- the tiny little bubbles on the inside of the glass!

Thanks, everyone! This one was fun, as I already had the greens worked out from the previous piece. I have always hated painting with green (probably why I don't do landscapes, LOL), and as I got into that first one, I asked myself what in the world was I doing?!! Finally, I translated the green into blue, laid it all in with blues, then put greens over top like a paint-by-number. It worked. Thank goodness for blue :)

I'm in love with the yellows :D. The tall and skinny format is really really great too.

Gorgeous greens...what kind of greens are you using? I'm looking for greens to add to my little pastel mishmash.

Thanks, Rain and Anne.

I struggle with greens, so they were a real challenge. I actually relied heavily on blues and blue-greens. Mt Vision #30 and #31 were two of the blue-greens, Schmincke Prussian Blue dark got a lot of use, true greens were Unison Green #25 (a gorgeous stick!) and Mt Vision #70, light greens were Mt Vision #362 and #52, and that brilliant yellow-green (awesome color!) is Mt Vision #360. The yellows are from the Great American set of 39 brights (I don't think they sell that set anymore), and the Mt Vision set of 25 yellows.

edited to add: one of my all-time favorite darks (that is also a green) is Sennelier #177. It's a black-green that is just amazing. I buy them three at a time.

I will do a WIP soon, I promise :)

You're halfway there with the greens of a landscape, did you know that? :thumbsup: Starting with blues and purples for shadow, and pinks-reds-oranges-yellows for light (browns too, if you use earth-tones), and then putting greens on top give luxurious greens.

I "hated" greens too. So I did many paintings with greens in them, starting with a very simple green cube, advancing to more complicated subjects.

Kim,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to tell us about your greens. I'm in love with the fresh green color you have so I'm making a list of your faves to add to my collection.

A wonderful companion piece to the first one. I especially like the carry through of the yellow into the vase.

Wonderful work again, Kim! They must look incredible together....great greens! I have trouble with greens too (why IS that..?), gonna check out the colors you've used...Love the format, good one!

Thanks, Charlie. After these two pieces, I feel a little more confident about green. I'm actually rather eager to use green again, so I'm going to have to work out some green setups!

Thanks Merethe, Pat, Jamie and Nancy for your kind words!

I'm going to post the two images side-by-side....they look a little odd together, but also kind of cool. (Mods, if I'm using too much bandwidth, please just take these images out.)

Kim, I think I posted this request on your other work but was reviewing your postings because I just love all your work. My request is for a WIP on glass. You do just an amazing job!!! Help us learn.
