Viridian Green is an intriguing riddle of a color. In an ancient Latin, viridian was derived from virdis which meant green. One would believe that this color would be exceedingly green. The truth is that this color is near, if not exactly, on the border between blue and green. Viridian Green is an excellent choice for spring paintings, ocean waves, or any project that needs a playful splash of color. Many artists choose this particular color because of the cooler tones of blue mix so well with the renewal feeling of green. Viridian Green is not known for overwhelming an art piece, but rather adding a whimsical charm that blends well with other painting themes. Artists are recommended to pick up this color as it provides an excellent source of laid back elegance few other colors can match.
