Well, what we saw in TOS wasn't a green ship, and what we saw in TMP wasn't a green ship... both were a nice, steel-looking grey tone.
Somewhere I have a photo of one of the models AMT built and in that photo you can see that the ship is actually painted in kind of a very pale lavender and a sorta of sea green. Those colors are pretty consistent with what's seen in these Ellan of Troyius screenshots. In other cases the ship appeared rather greenish, as below...
...but I can't remember this ship ever looking gray on TOS.
