plant details

Starting the first layers of color on the plant details: ochre on the yucca flowers, greenish yellow on the sunset side of the yucca leaves, ochre on the lower sections. I did an orange-yellow on the cactus flowers, then added the red when it was dry.

Decisions: the yucca needs to be smaller in the final painting and the cactus much larger - to look like it is closer to you.
