Mixing Watercolor Greens

Mixing Watercolor Greens - student project

This class is such a fun way to learn how to mix green colors in watercolor.  I really learned from following Eva's examples and also from my mistakes as I tried to physically force mixing the colors on the paper instead of letting them mingle and play on their own. Most surprising to me is how some colors mix and blend well while others try to stay totally separated, especially the ultramarine blue.  I still need to try the cactus painting and I know it will be another great learning experience.
