Of all the colors of the rainbow, our eyes can see green the best.

Back in evolutionary time, we needed to be able to see the trees and leaves of the jungle with great clarity to spot predators and find food sources.

We developed an ability to see many more shades of green than other colors. When you are painting, be especially careful with the shades of green you create. Make sure there is some variety. Green things that are farther away often appear slightly more blueish.

Green is a color that is both warm and cool. It is the color of living things and of the emerald waters of emotion. I love painting in green.
