Thank you very much Glennys.  I have tried so hard to create similar colors for something else and failed.  Will try again..........Smiles to you ;-)  PS now I can't remember what I was trying to paint!  LOL

I'm very happy to share the colour of the blue gums Dorian. there is a great variety from the darkest to the lightest.  Darkest would have been a mix of black, ultra and a little yellow ochre. you will have to adjust the warm to cool ratio, just keep  adding the ochre for warmer. Then as they become lighter, I used a little lemon pale, cerulean, white and light turquoise.  the gums are quite grey and the lightest light ones have a lot of white in them. just keep adding little at a time until you think you have it.  thank you so much for your lovely comments.

Made my day.  I hope this helps.

I am most impressed with the Blue Gums.  Will you share with me  the  colours you  used to achieve them.

Smiles to you ;-)
