Since I had done two paintings of the same set up I fortuitously had the opportunity to compare Winsor Green and Viridian as glazes for the background. As in most comparison cases there are advantages and disadvantages to each. Winsor Green is staining but more vibrant, Viridian is removable but not as clean and clear. This is the Viridian glaze.
