Hi, I am about to start the cherries and I see sap green is one of the colours on the palette. How do I mix sap green. I have viridian, ultramarine blue, phthalo blue, titanium white, cad red, orange, crimson, raw umber, burnt sienna, yellow pale and yellow ochre,

I have looked all through the colour mixing questions and can't see the answer anywhere  :help: :pray:
Aroha! Lisa :-)

I normally use Viridian and add  cadmium orange to it until I get as close to sap green as possible. You will need to experiment.
