How to Mix Greens in Watercolour

In this class, I show you how to mix greens in watercolour.

This class focuses on how to mix a variety of different greens in watercolour and is a great place to start if you want to learn more about painting leaves, plants and trees. We start by looking at colour theory, so you understand how to make different greens from whatever colours you have in your palette. This section covers different pigment characteristics which may affect your painting, such as granulation and transparency. We then move on to experimenting with our palettes – making warm and cool greens, and the more neutral realistic greens that we see in nature.

Finally, we will look at how to make colour charts which you can use as a really useful reference guide for your future work. This class is a great foundation for people wanting to know more about botanical painting.
