I love green. If I was to say there was a colour that was “my” colour, it could only ever be green.
So when Tania Rose pondered why not many art works feature the colour green in this forum thread yesterday she got me thinking.

Why do I, who loves green so much rarely use it in my artworks? I really don’t know.

So I set myself a task for today. Create an artwork that uses green as the predominant colour. It was no easy task, and I found myself feeling increasingly uncomfortable with the brighter, richer greens that I tried using.
I finally settled for a not-so-green-but-still-green-enough shade that I felt suitably comfortable with.

It’s been an interesting project.

    Now I know why “The Surveyor” appeals to you! Love what you’ve done here Rosemary, and yes, I love green too.

  • Yes! I never thought that the color might be what attracts me to The Surveyor. I think you might be onto something there.

    Thanks Mel :)

    You know how much I love birds in artwork.. this is brilliant! Such a sense of peace and calm here. Makes me feel at ease with the world. Excellent mate :)

  • You do like birds. Sparrows tend to be quite bland little creatures, but I can’t help thinking they’re lovely. My garden is teeming with them!

    I’m so pleased you find a sense of peace here :))

    You’ve created a delightful image. Very peaceful . X

  • I’d love to see your gorgeous green house…. it would inspire me to hurry up & paint this one ;-)

    So great to hear from you – it’s been too long! We must catch up xx

    Ohhhhhh Rosemary this is such a gorgie green artwork – I LOVE IT – I could fav this a million times – Green is also my fav color also – Im at my happiest with lush green grass in my toes ( & the family in tow ) & I remember when I first joined RB (the first time) I went through everyones galleries & fav’d all of the green artworks – sooooooo tranquil to view – Im sure we will see a green theme gallery emerge – its soooooo you :)) xx

  • It really is a wonderful colour isn’t it? it’s calming, peaceful – always brings me back to earth and centres me.
    I’m just looking at some of the RedBubble purchases I’ve made over the years and I’m noticing that quite a lot of them feature green in some way – either in their general toning or the main subject. I guess I tend to favour it without really being aware that I do :))
