I achieved the different shades of green by glazing greens and reds. Some of the leaves were warm and some cold so I choose my colors carefully.
It was also challenging to soften the edges in places for the colors to flow.
I also worked on the values and darkening the shades of green. While working on the painting I thought it was too dark, but now I look at the photo and see there are plenty of lights to balance out the darks.
I really feel like I learned some new techniques and I also had alot of fun working on this painting.
