|To cover up the wubbles and lack of sizing, I had to go very dark, and didn't like it. So ...|
|I started again. I masked all the leaves, and started glazing the background.|
|... and glazing|
|... and more glazing|
|... and yet more glazing, till I was satisfied I had a rich and noticeably-graded background.|
|I started the foliage last night [a midnight oil-burner]|
|And I am still getting the colors down on all the leaves.|
I am sure they will need at least 2 more glazes.
