It is sort of hard to see from this picture but it looks like it shades from whitish green, to yellow/highlighter green, to a lime green. If so, paint the area white, then blend the green in with thin coats of the green shot from an airbrush with a wide spray, with fewer coats at the rear and more coats at the front. If there is more than one shade of green you also need to blend the shades together back to front.

yep start with the light base colour and then graduate back.

I've done lots of graduation practice with some mixed results (im a gibbon) get some cheap acrylic artist paints (don't waste a $5 jar of Tamiya)

You could use a white base, then use layers of Gunze Fluro yellow and Fluro green, which are pretty translucent, fading them together with the airbrush. Or try clear colours.
