Not a Green Tractor
At this time of the year, maybe it's all summer, the results of painting outdoors in the green landscape seem acidic, garish, loud, hot, and just too green. It becomes hard to tell what's going on and how to deal with it. Today I tried adding red to tone down the green, but I'm not sure of the results. This little 8x10 oil on panel, done yesterday, has the least of these objectionable characteristics of the work I've done in the last couple days. I did have a choice of doing a green tractor but passed on it for the moment.
