Green with Envy/Frustration

While most people are afraid of regular things like heights, sharks, tornadoes, sharknadoes, etc. what scares me most is having to paint landscapes and use the color green. For some reason, it is just so difficult for me (and many other artists) to make green look realistic and/or not stupid looking in a landscape. The problem this summer is that I want to continue painting and work on a couple landscapes…but I live in Lancaster County, so I’m basically surrounded by a sea of green with cornfields, plenty of trees, and grass. So this summer, I’m going to try and conquer my fear, and try to make my greens believable, or at the most, not terrible.
