The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 77
Green Gold is a brightener, adding yellowish springy green when applied in thin washes. It moves toward and olive green used thicker and is a beautiful addition to your palette if botanicals are your passion.
A trip to the Woodland Park zoo with my grandson involved the discovery of this amazing bird, the Nicobar Pigeon, whose feathers in certain light, just happen to be "green gold". Throw in some cobalt teal blue, indigo and umber violet and you are well on your way to capturing those iridescent green feathers this guy flaunts.

“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.
