I painted from this spot earlier this year, in the Spring (see that painting here). As you can tell, things have really greened up since then.

Dealing with an overly-green landscape is tough. I looked around to include anything that was not green. In this case it was the sort of purplish-gray reeds in the right middle ground, and the tree on the left of the same color (they're not showing up very well in the photo of the painting, sigh). And it  also helps to respect all the subtleties of different greens out there as much as you can. I think I had about 7 different green mixes going on my palette.
