Color Temperature in the Green Landscape

Greenery in the landscape tends to pose a challenge to many artists, especially during summer months in certain locations where green foliage is prominent. A strong understanding of color temperature will allow you to more effectively create color variety and drama, and capture a genuine effect of light and shadow on the landscape, while still allowing green foliage to appear green to the viewer.



This lesson will show and explain in pastel how to create dramatic color use in a prominently green landscape by basing particular color choices on temperature rather than merely on the green hues visible in a reference photo.
