Shape and Value Study in Greens

I did this painting in the workshop tonight - it is a study that started with value shapes and then I worked up to details at the end.  This is also much looser than I usually paint.  The workshop was wonderful and I learned much from this wonderful teacher - Christopher Leeper.

BarbraJoan, AutumnLeaves and Meera...thanks for your comments - I feel that greens are very difficult and I can use all the practice I can get painting them. This painting is taken from the Daily Paintworks newest weekly challenge.
