Paeonia Step One

I have drawn out a picture of a Paeonia. I am basing my composition on photographs I took at Ness Botanic Gardens on the Wirral a couple of years ago. 
The flower is bright yellow but it is mainly in a shady spot so it is in shadow.  I want to paint this picture, not for the flowers sake but for the tangle of leaves in shade and sunlight.
I have painted the background with a light wet wash of sunlit green, and have just started to paint sap green on one of the leaves.
