Viviva' s Foliage Green, like other colors in their Spring Set, is a bright, clear green, transparent and intense.
Adding a little yellow or orange can bring it down to a believable "foliage" color. The unfurling fern frond was just about that bright though, so I got a chance to use this green almost straight from the tube, or in this case straight off the color sheet.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
