Both of the greens are used on the green areas with Sick Green base coat and Escorpena as a sort of highlight or transitional color. He uses Burnt Umber on the horse skin and the hooves. Moon Yellow is the final layer on these green areas and creates a nice transition.

He also grabs some Menoth White Highlight from P3 to highlight the white areas. He takes a glaze of Moot Green here to get the bottom of the Horse tabards to their brightest layer. He does the same with a glaze of Death World Forest but only in the shadows.
