The lawns in my watercolor house portraits are painted wet in wet, the same techinque used for the sky. It took me a long time to realize lawns are not just one shade of green, and the color seen depends on the season.
Sap Green is my "go-to" lawn color, combined with Prussian Blue or a touch of Burnt Umber, with Payne's Gray added for the shadow areas. The same colors are used for background trees, with Violet substituted for Burnt Umber in the shadow areas. All of my watercolors are Winsor & Newton.
