My (A) art professor took the class out to the grasslands that surrounded the campus for a plein air class (painting outdoors). It was spring time and everything was green. As we were getting ready to paint, he asked us, "What color is the grass?" "Green" everyone answered. "Look again," he said. "Are you sure it is just green? We sampled this succulent plant photo for the range of greens, and this is the result.
From that point on, I have been inspired to look beyond the obvious. In the color spectrum of light the color green is between yellow and blue. As you look closer at any green object or plant, you may see dark green, or a yellow green, a pale white green, or even a blue green. The same green may look different depending on the light, or the background.
Develop mindful eyes by looking beyond the obvious!
