Layering the Plants

A little time in the studio this afternoon led to getting the right hand patch of wormwood complete in grey, and a layer of mixed greens over the left hand side to find that odd blue-ish green.

I’ll re-draw the leaves now that the value and colour are there, popping in a bit of shadow work and definition to control the shapes of the leaves a bit more – everything’s a bit too loose right now.
