The fourth panel in the Book of Color is Green.
Below are the supplies I used:
Acrylic paints – soft body and fluid. These three were very different in color. The inexpensive acrylic was a beautiful grass green called Green Light, the Golden Green Gold was lovely. I liked how the green and the gold separated depending on how thin I laid down the paint. The other Golden was Permanent Green Light.
Daler Romney and Liquitex acrylics – The Daler Romney has a beautiful shine and a bit of glimmer to it (similar to the LuminArte Watercolors), the color is Macaw Green. The Liquitex color was Vivid Lime Green.
Adirondack Color Wash spray – the color is Lettuce and was more brown than green once sprayed. You can see the droplets in the upper left corner.
Dylusions Ink spray – Loved the brightness of this color, Fresh Lime.
Painters and Liquitex acrylic pens – Loved the Painters bright green called Lime Green. It was a neon. The darker green of the Liquitex was Emerald green. The lighter Liquitex was Vivid Lime Green and matched their acrylic ink that I used.
Faber Castell Gel Stick – what is not to like about these? They go on smooth and activate nicely when water is applied with a brush.
Caran d’Arche neocolor II – like the gel sticks, they roll on smooth and activate more color when water is applied. The two colors were Spring Green and Yellow Green.
Colored pencils (Faber Castell) – I had lots of green pencils but decided on these three, light green, emerald green and dark phthalo green.
LuminArte Watercolors – Key Lime, Irish Mist and Moss Green. Love the shimmer in these.
Zebra highlighter pen – the neon didn’t show through as much as I had expected (like I saw on the yellow panel).
Cray-Pas Oil Pastel – lovely spring green, the color was Yellow Green. Knowing that other mediums will not lay on top of this, I didn’t use much.
Gelly Roll pen – this one didn’t show up well. I used it to make zig zag marks between the solid color bars. I think these pens are make for darker backgrounds.
Ranger Archival Ink pad – I used this color, Olive, with a foam stamp (bars on the sides). It’s pretty dark as expected.
StazOn Ink pad – the color, Cactus Green, was also applied using the foam stamp.
I’ve discovered that I am drawn to the light, bright greens and that you just need a bit of the dark for contrast.
Ready for the next panel, blue. I have lots of shades, tints and tones of that color.
