20" x 16" Acrylic painting I just finished... trying to learn about atmospheric perspective and warm and cool colors etc...
I always hear people talk about warm and cool colors... like I'm going to make this a cool green or a warm green.. but I don't really know the definition and exactly what it means or how its used?

 :clap: I agree with Bill, I have always admired the way you paint the details in your work, John. This painting makes me think of the Alps here in Switzerland.

Regarding cold & warm colours, this is a link to a fairly good explanation

Fabulous painting as always John. Incredible amount of detail :congrats:

I did a video years back about warm vs cold colours which should help you:

Nolan, I had wondered whether you had a class or video regarding cold/warm colours. ☺️
Will take a look now.

it was a very old and awkward video, but was one of the vids that got the classes started
