Waterclour in Plein air

As a painter of landscapes, I find myself in constant need of a variety of Greens and Browns. While I am aware that there are an infinite number of ways of mixing these from more basic primaries, I find that this takes more time than I can afford when painting in plein air. Using one of the many options offered by Winsor Newton gives me a head start, without using several other pigments. I have found Winsor Newton to be of reliable quality over many years.

W&N Green Blue Shade

W&N’s Green Blue Shade is very transparent, stains beautifully, and I find it very versatile, usage wise. Being such a strong pigment on its own, I love mixing it with Ochre, Quinacridone Gold or a strong yellow for the most vibrant green tones. Tried it with W&N’s Indian Red adding some granulation medium for an exquisite brownish shade I fell in love with.
