How to MIX GREENS for Landscapes
One of the trickiest colours to mix in a landscape painting is green and its one that causes artists the most problems. Mix your greens right and they can look amazing and vibrant but get the wrong and they can look acidic and harsh.
In this painting tutorial I will show you how to mix some basic greens that you can use in a landscape painting. But instead of me spending the whole video in front of my paint palette, I've mixed the greens as I paint a landscape that features rolling hills and trees from the Northland region of New Zealand.
Whilst this art work is painted in oils you can use acrylics also.
In this painting tutorial I cover the step-by-step process on the following:
