Shades of Green

Shades of Green. Gouache and Markers. December 2014

My set with 12 tubes gouache paint from Reeves contains two greens – one emerald green and one tube of leaf green. I wanted to find out which shades of green you can get when you mix emerald green with yellows – in this case lemon yellow and medium yellow. And as I didn’t want to do this in a simple colour chart I thought it might be nice to do a kind of green colour wheel.

I was really surprised how many shades of green you can get. When the paint had dried I grabbed two markers – a red one and a dark green one and put those tiny little circles on top of the green as a kind of decoration.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
