Although this image probably looks quite similar to the previous post's, there are hours here of cleanup and light glazes for the leaves.
This evening I've focused on the bud, trying to develop form and detail. I've been taught to apply unifying washes of very light titanium white and white glazes were applied a few times. But also, a light verona green earth helps to pull form together. I'm finding that dry brush stippling is helping me reach the texture.
