The color Green ...
The colour with which nature has tinted the background of all her pictures, green, is the most suitable ground for other colours. It unites wonderfully well with the yellow and blue which have produced it; it heightens red, and there is no flower or ripe fruit which it does not set off to greater advantage.... it is both gay and modest, bright and tender. Green can only awaken amiable and gentle thoughts, remembrances gracious as those of spring, and other promises of nature: green gives repose to the mind, as it does to the sight. ~Charles Blanc, Art in Ornament and Dress, "Personal Adornment: Colours and Their Expression," 1875, translated from French
Today starts a new color challenge at The Outlawz Challengeswith a monochromatic challenge from Ursula. Although her colors are shades or orange, you can use any color.
Our sponsor this month is MariDigis but I am not using one of her images this week due to some technical issues with coloring LOL ...
