Happy St. Patrick's Day! In honor of the day when we all wear green, I decided to make a color wheel using three green paints: Green Gold, Pthalo Green (Yellow Shade), and Viridian Green. I was curious to learn how they were different, how they mixed, and how they tinted and shaded. My color wheel teaches me all those things!
- Viridian Green has a slight blue hue to it.
- I can use Green Gold as a yellow, especially when mixing. But it's a less saturated color.
- Who needs to buy teal paint? Check out those lovely shades of teal I got by tinting my paint.
- I like the shaded (outside ring) colors the best. Perhaps I'm still in a winter mood? But those deep dark greens are super appealing to me at the moment.
- The differences between Viridian Green and Pthalo Green (Yellow Shade) are minor and subtle. I do own Pthalo Green (Blue Shade) and I suspect it's even closer to Viridian Green. Perhaps I will not restock the Viridian Green. The bottle is almost empty and it's so close in hue to colors I already own that it seems silly to buy more.
- On the other hand, I need to choose some other greens. Green gold is great, but I need some other green hues for my paint collection. Time to go shopping! :)
I hope you're having a very green day! Thanks for stopping by!
