I ‘ve been working on some color studies lately to expand my range of greens. One of my clients is wanting a lime green for a project, similar to the green in the photo above. A strong and powerful pop of color. More on the actual project later. For now I am working on establishing a sample of the range of green shown on the planters.
This is a theoretical representation of the range of Lime Greens I’m looking for. My next step will be to try mixing actual paint samples to make this green.
These color cards show the results of mixing Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Antibes Green and English Yellow in varying proportions, 1:1, 2:1, and 1:2. I like to keep a record when I mix colors so I can refer to them on later projects. Next I will mix Antibes Green with Arles for a comparison and sharing those tomorrow.
