Crayola Crayons Color Challenge: Week 4, mountain meadow

Mountain Meadow

Eek! This colour was definitely a challenge for me. In fact, to be upfront about it, I resorted to the nefarious practice of  deliberately adjusting the windlight to change the appearance of the outfit. (You can see the same image taken with a more neutral/ cooler windlight setting after the jump.) Is that cheating? Probably!
I found this quite an unusual colour - it's green, but to my eye (or monitor) it's a green with quite a bit of blue in it. But not so much blue that it's aqua, or turquoise, or teal (that would have been easy).

When I started the challenge, I decided that I wouldn't buy anything specifically for it as my inventory is enormous enough to have (probably) one of everything already. But the truth is, like many people, I'm not such a big fan of green. It just doesn't appeal.

So, I looked at a number of items, picked some close-ish matches, decided on a 'mermaid' character, and... changed the windlight.

Job done :)
