Three layers of greenPosted: August 31, 2012
I picked this little area at the Botanical Gardens because it was the reverse of the scenes I usually draw. Most of the time the dark green trees are in the background and the grass in the foreground is light. But sitting on the hill in the Chinese garden, I looked through the dark layer of trees to the sunlight foliage beyond. The hosta in the foreground is mostly a wash of cerulean blue with few darks added in later.
