Thanks Keith,

Much appreciated, it seems the greens are much "greener" over there.
I still am amazed that greens are so local, .. Irish greens are much deeper while English ones are more darker, ... these seems to be a bit flatter while Dutch greens are more muted and German greens more blueish, ... but maybe I'm just rambling around.

Anyway thnx for the enlightment.

I think some of it is down to personal preference, as well as the colours available on the palette. Some people like saturated colours, while others like muted ones.

I love the size of these small paintings.

Yes, it's sometimes difficult to paint in such a small area, but they make a nice change from the bigger paintings.
