Getting the right green for your subject can often be a big challenge. This paint along demo will give you all the information and methods you will need to portray greens in sunlight, low light, shadow, and to create atmospheric perspective.

Having several greens will widen your color palette and create new exciting greens. Some examples are sap, viridian (or Phthalo green), hookers, intense green, and olive.
