When the twelve-sided die indicates green as my dominant color, I groan.  It is a mid-value hue when fully saturated.

Glass Inkwells No. 6

When painting en plein air I love playing with the variations of greens.  When playing The Color Scheme Game I am not as enthusiastic.  Fortunately, in this case, my color scheme was a Semi Triad (Green, Yellow and Violet).  The yellow provided a high value hue and the violet provided a low value hue.
