Capturing the beauty of spring colors by painting with watercolor.

Updated: May 24

The green color is all around us, and it's a good idea to develop the expertise in mixing its different shades. Mixing green color into harmonious shades can be a real challenge for the painter. Green is one of the most pleasing colors of the color wheel, but too much green in painting is considered 'bad taste' and could be annoying. Using a limited palette has many benefits. Fewer colors means you mix most of the colors yourself: two blues and two yellows, so all the greens on the painting look related and are harmonious. The variation of mixed green in the cool or warm shades creates a harmony that is pleasant to the viewer's eyes. Take a look at the flower painting demo video, just for inspiration!
