Liquidambar styraciflua Finished

I deepened some of the shadows in the Liquidambar leaf, using the same colours but with less water. Then I added gouache for highlights on the raindrops, also small sparkles in the grasses. 
I finished painting the background leaves with Vandyke Brown and a number two brush, keeping the paint quite dry. I always enjoy adding the last details of any painting, and I just kept going until I felt it was finished.
