In part eight of the tutorial we learn how to add 'punch' with the addition of water droplets to the main leaf.
in this part we finish off the droplets in the main leaf and begin the build up of shape, form, detail and water droplets in secondary leaves.
We now add a shot of yellow into the painting with the lower sumac leaf. First build blends and then breaking up with detail.
We start this part by painting the sumac stock the bird is resting on. As the chapter moves on we build up the right sumac leaf in the background.
