The Long Road from Green to White
A delicate monochromatic study for the oenophile
Dozens of shades of green combine to depict a produce truck motoring down the road in the warm glow of the evening.
- I love this painting. With the palette limited largely to shades of white and green, it gives such a harmonious, elegant feel.
The challenge here is that to get the right colors, I had to mix each shade of green to ensure that the hues worked together - and there’s simply no grabbing a tube of paint when an exact shade of chartreuse is required. That’s where my 40+ years as a painter come in handy. Knowing how much purple, white, or red to daub in saves much wasted paint.
You can see me setting up this scene in a video on Instagram: The Long Road from Green to White.
The Long Road from Green to White is a companion piece to The Long and Wine-ding Road, which features purple grapes on a similar journey to the winery. The two images are mirrored and have the truck and shelf at the same level so they can be hung side-by-side, if desired.
