New Green

Since I just finished "Airborne over Healdsburg," I am letting myself start a new project. Here's my palette -- I'm thinking springy yellowy-greens with bits of purple and red. (That's a split complimentary color combination, I believe... check out this fun website!)

I'm not known for working in green much. But I think all the rain we've had over the last 6 weeks is making me crave the color of fresh grass and new tree leaves.

Isn't it so fun to start something new?


  1. Oh, I want some of those greens - yummilicious from someone who is known for working with those greens!!

  2. Yes, yes use that purple by the green! I love it. Yum.

  3. Thanks for the colour link, really useful and fun. Maggie H

    Thank you so much for the link. I have been waiting since February 3rd for "The Color Star" that I ordered from Amazon. They keep pushing back the ship date. With this site I am tempted to cancel the order.....

    I do so love that area of California.....My aunt and uncle lived in Menlo Park for over 30 years and I always loved visiting.


  5. -sharp intake of breath- Oh my! Those are a lot of the same kids that live in my stash! Love those greens and al their friends - so much fun. With purple? Absolutely.
