|Pepsico Ducks, Watercolor by Mriiam Schulman ©SchulmanArt (→collect duck prints)\|
Green is an indisputable and indispensable component of painting watercolor landscapes. Learning how to properly mix green paint will improve all your watercolor landscape paintings.
1) Although Phthalo Green ( also known as Winsor green) looks artificial on its own, it makes a terrific base to use in mixing vibrant greens.
2) My favorite combination is to combine Winsor green with Burnt Sienna.
3) The brownish sienna softens the bottle green to a natural olive green applicable to many watercolor landscape paintings
4) For more variety I sometimes substitute Quinacridone Gold instead of Burnt Sienna or use Viridian Green as the base instead of Winsor Green. As you see, all these greens are soft, vibrant and natural.
