Love Affair with Sap Green

Sap Green.  Have you ever seen a more perfect color?  It occurs in nature, unlike the weird semi-opaque that viridian tends to be.  It blends much more easily with the rest of your oils because it's nice and transparent.  When painting anything representational, you're a lot more likely to need this color than any other green.  I love mixing my colors, but this is nearly impossible to achieve with other greens. If you don't have this in your palette, put it there.  ASAP.
