                 I recently met up with some other artists and we spent the day paintingI had arranged for a girl to come and do the barn chores for me, so oh what a glorious day that was.

                 This is a watercolor  'Spring Promise'  33x43 cm. There was a discussion and I've heard it before from other artists that you can make quite a decent green from mixing Windsor yellow and Paynes greySo that's what I tried here.  The leaves are just a mix of those two pigments.  Do I like it?    The green seems a bit dead.  Makes a nice dark green for evergreens but I like more variety I think.

                 Do you have any favorite mixes for greens or tips to share?
