Vivid lime green is one of my absolute favorite colours to work with...especially in these acrylic inks as they make the perfect wash for backgrounds. Layering a bright under a deeper tone really creates a glow in a painting, which is why I also often use yellow or orange but, because this is a very yellow green, it adds warmth to blue as well. The way colours affect one another when they are layered is one of the things I pay close attention to whenever I begin a new piece. Even though I may not have a complete idea of the finished painting, I usually have an idea of the direction the piece will take...in this case I'm thinking mountains and a lake, and possibly a canoe, too. I just can't stay away from those canoes too long, they always remind me of home.
