Liquidambar styraciflua stage four

Most of the grass is finished. I am now splashing colour onto the leaves. After all that green its nice to see some bright colours. 
I am using wet mixes of Cobalt Magenta, Quinacridone Magenta and Permanent Rose on the liquidambar leaf with a number two brush. 
I am also picking out the veins and raindrops with a thick wash of Permanent Magenta and a number one brush.
For the other leaves in the background I am using  Burnt Sienna, Sap Green and Alizarin Crimson in quite wet washes with a number two brush.
Next I will be adding more details, I love the details it is the best part of painting.
