Green Button and Skinner Blend

I walked past a plant on the way to the studio today that was a riot of yellow flowers. Just a few days ago I had taken a photo of the same plant when the plant was still all in bud. There is something reassuring about things that are all one colour or a gentle gradient. Thank you Judith Skinner for showing us how to make a gradient. Here is the blend inspired by the green flower. I am looking forward to making something new out of it or just incorporating it into a larger piece.
Here is the link to a tutorial if case you have not made a Skinner blend before.

Something about green is just so soothing. Must be in our biology, perhaps when we see green we associate it with spring's renewal and the time of plenty ahead?
