"Arroyo Trees" ©

A long time ago a master painter told me that "green" landscapes were the most difficult of all to paint. At the time I didn't know the difference between viridian and sap green, so his comment didn't mean much. Now years later every time I attempt a green landscape his words come back to me. All green landscapes are difficult but at the same time so very interesting, offering the challenge to come up with a variety of greens to tell the story. Which is what I have tried to do here, with the trees in the Pasadena arroyo.
