Story of a painting part 6- foreground resolution
I've used a size 2 Da Vinci maestro 35 brush to sketch with W&N sepia some twigs that will sprout leaves.

For the green leaves I've used cadmium yellow and hookers green for the base co,our and then dropped in hookers green to add some darker times and then some alizarin Crimson with sepia to add the multi tonal values that turning leaves have.
