Canbury Gardens

I did a sketch this morning while seating in the sun at Canbury Gardens. The greens of the trees and the bushes don't mix well, and as I have been having this problem since forever, I did a quick study on mixing greens when I got back home. I started mixing sap green with the blues, the browns and the yellows in my watercolour pocket palette, but I wasn't happy with the results, so I started from the three yellows obtaining much better greens. I must remember all this next time I'm painting landscapes.
