Lilacs,  24.5" x 17", Oil on Board
I'm still struggling with determining the proper greens to use.  The lilac leaves are a cool blue green. But when the sun shines through them they take on a yellow tint.  Two problems arise, 1) mixing a green that is yellow without being murky and 2) seeing if that color rings true for a lilac in the painting.
