Mixing the perfect green can be challenging if you don't know the basics of color theory. 

All colors are either warm or cool

Yellows can lean towards the warm side and be more orange, or they can lean towards the cool side and be more green. 

Mix cool tones to get a vibrant green

Mixing warm tones results in a muddier green

This can result in a more natural-looking green.

Varying the Amount of Yellow VS Blue Can Change the Color

So can adding water to dilute the paint.
