Mixing watercolour greens.

This class was so much fun to do. It is one thing to know that by mixing yellow and blue you get green but when you actually mix those and see the endless possibilities! So amazing and inspiring!


My watercolour set is a very old White Nights set and I could not figure out the names for my colours. So that is why my blues are called B1, B2, B3.


Also, I get lost a little in organizing my first set of tries. it is mixing the green with all those colours... :)) On the second set of tries, I get lost in proportions. :D It happens.

The final chart looks quite good I think, I love those greens. Although I didn't manage to keep the value the same in all my squares.

And because I enjoyed it so much I tried this experiment with coloured pencils too, creating gradients from yellow to blue.
