Dark, vintage-looking green is great for dramatic landscapes and could be a great part of a limited (and gloomy) palette (very similar green can be seen in Andrew Wyeth's palette). It blends well with other colors and is quite useful in portrait painting, providing great realistic shadows and undertones without turning ochers and siennas into mud.
