i spent hours on leaf veins the other day, hahaha. my brain hurts. also blocking in some shadows and starting to get more basic colors in, kinda starting to get a feel for the shadows and colors of the finished piece before i get too lost detailing. unfortunately a lot of that nice salt texture will be lost after i darken the background with more washes, i'm putting more warm brownish greens in the middle/focal area, and more bluish greens in the very shadowy areas.
