Comparing Terre Verte / Chromium Oxide Green / Forest Green

The first three swatches show these three colours in succession tinted with White. Terre Verte is sometimes used as the underpainting colour callled “grisaille” underpainting colour in figure painting. Chromium Green Oxide is a very neutral greyish green and can be boosted with brighter colours to take it in a warm or cool direction while making use of the opacity that it offers. Forest Green is probably the most “naturalistic” of the greens shown on our colour chart and is therefore popular in landscape painting. The two long swatches at the bottom of this page show Forest Green and Terre Verte being used transparently.
