How To Create Vibrant Greens


Hi Everyone,

In todays post I’ve invited my friend and award winning artist Christine Waara to share her thoughts on “Conquering the Color Green”!

Christine Waara is an award winning artist from Fairport, NY.  Her subjects come from her life experiences: florals, landscapes, and still lifes.   While she primarily paints in watercolors, she also paints in pastel and oil as well.  Christine also teaches and gives demos.  Learn more at

I’m excited and honored that Christine went out of her way to create a video just for this post! In the video she will do a brief demo on how to mix greens in watercolor both directly on paper and on a palette using warm and cool blues and yellows to get different feelings and effects.

Thank you so much Christine!



Be My Guest Artist: How Do You Manage the Color “Green”?

Of course month of March is nearly approaching and what best to talk about than the color “Green”! I’m sorry, did I say something wrong? Is it your favorite color or do you cringe at the thought of using a specific tube of paint?

Green Paint

Here is the opportunity to share your expertise, thoughts and handling of the color “Green”.  I am seeking to feature here 4 artists for the month of March to share anything green related. Here are some ideas;
