I recently met up with some other artists and we spent the day painting. I 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 grey. So 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?
