Color Project No. 10 is Chromium Oxide Green.
This coat of arms of Elizabeth I is in Derbyshire, England and is quite beautiful so forgive my rendering of it with my decorative flower border. I have to let my urges take me where they will for this project or it won’t provide me with the interesting information down the road when I go into analysis.
PG17 might look familiar to you as the color of money. Also the green color of wine bottles. Also, it is so lightfast it is great for industrial paint that needs to last a long time, um military vehicles and industrial walls in hospitals , ugly ugly. You are indeed familiar with this green and it does not make you love it. But I find it a humble and neutral color. Pleasant to paint with, a soft green wash and very opaque when thick; it’s good to keep around. I don’t use it a lot but perhaps paired with a pale blue and a red earth color…. see? There I go, wanting to grab more colors. Eventually, I will cave. Just watch.
