The greens are the story this time. There is still much defining to do between leaf shapes and values.
I mix most of my own greens using varying shades of blues, browns, violets and yellows but the greens I use from the tube most often are Hookers Green Dark and Sap Green. The reason I mix most of my own greens is because some greens from the tube are highly pigmented. This means they can actually have a gritty texture and become dirty looking. Modeling the leaf greens so that they become part of the whole and not a muddled mess is tricky and I move slowing here to refine and define while still trying to keep it natural looking.
