Paeonia Step Three

This is a complicated and detailed painting, so I find it easier to jump around in it not painting it in any order.
I think it also helps to achieve a good tonal balance if you lay down the darkest colours early on in the painting. The darkest background colour is a mix of midnight green and neutral tint. The top left hand leaves are painted in sap green, sunlit green and yellow ochre for the stems.
