Dogwood leaves - detail


I painted strips of paper which resulted in a slight variation of greens. I think that's okay considering it might add to the dimensionality instead of having a uniform green as the backdrop for the flowers.

I colored each stem with a brown marker. With the green paint base color, it turned the stems greyish green...perfect for matching the trunk. I then added veins to each leaf on the sprigs with a ball stylus. I had a few leaf casualties, but I kept the sprigs and the loose leaves.
