"Blue Refraction" - SOLD

I always like how glass will throw in some really dark greens and blues. I did, however, have a really hard time getting one blue in particular. I think I need to get a phthalo green and see if that will work. You know what color I am taking about. It is the one that is as light as a highlight, but as colorful as if straight out of the tube. It's the impossible color.

My teacher used to say. "okay, get out your tube of WN screaming highlight." :)
Do you use thalo blue? I always have and it does make nice turquoise-y green-y blue, type colors.
I love the crisp edges and the translucence of your paintings.

I don't generally use phalo green either, but I know it's really powerful. I have a class with Kevin Weckbach in a few weeks, and he's recommended it for his class, so I'll soon have more experience. I'll post on my blog the week of 2/27.
