Then after adding lots of leaves and textures I start to overlay the colour.(Fig 2)
Then I simply add the blossom texture and colour as another layer. (Fig 3)
So I have added the warmer colours on the tips of the blossom. This will be extended in the next follow-on painting which will have far more warm colours added. As the work develops, warmer colours will be included in all the next paintings.
There will be apples!!! :)
