68 Bonnie update 2

Well, not got as much done as I'd hoped in this time, usual problems of life getting in the way and certain parts of the painting process not going to plan. I always seem to have a problem with greens, they look fine on the pallette but once they go on the canvas they end up too dark, too strong or both! I don't have a problem with any other colour, so perhaps its a form of colour blindness, although that wouldn't explain how I recognise them as being too strong on the canvas!

Anyway you'll see what I mean on this pic. The hill at the front is both too dark & too rich in the greens. (the dark bit at the very top is the shadow of the easel...)
