In her next chapter Jeanne Dobie explains how to avoid muddy, chalky, overmixed greens, how to make them transparent and natural. She makes color charts, explaining the amounts and sequence (my chart is here). It is interesting that she does not mix yellow and blue (as I usually do), but she takes cool green, cool yellow and adds a bit of red for the change of tone, temperature and color.
Here are my two attempts. It looks like I have to read and practice this lesson for the second time..
The first sketch was inspired by photo of Petrea Burchard, and I draw the second one when opened the car door at the parking near my work place today (amazing how much beauty we miss when driving).
This is the book I learn from and post my lessons here:
