E is for Emerald

A light and bright shade of green with a slight bluish tint, reminiscent of the gemstone. A succulent plant from my garden was vibrant and vivid enough to remind me of it. Those petals are like little gems.

    I love the way there is both an illusion of “thin” green leaves as well as an illusion of crystals. Also fitting is that emeralds contain a lot of inclusions, so, the different shades make a kind of sense.

    Thank you all, I’m glad you like it! I struggled with this one. It took me many tries to get the shade I had in mind, experimenting with different settings at different times of the day and lighting conditions.
