Mixing Greens and Other Spring Colorswith Vera Dickerson

Taking our cue from the fresh colors of the season, learn which yellows, blues and other colors can be used to express this new growth and blossom. Though landscape and floral come to mind, this palette also works for any other subject matter, giving it a bright, upbeat mood. We will take a look at Impressionists and Post-Impressionists and their color and brush work choices, as well as other plein air painters, and their color ways.
