I almost gave up at this point, but pushed through by adding a layer of india ink inktense pencil over the colorburst background. Then it seemed too flat and not near enough green.
I'm not sure this is considered watercolor because I used gesso in the last couple of layers. It was so flat that I just grabbed a small brush and added more leaves over the water colored background then after drying, added even more watercolor over that. I like it now even though I have a feeling that I'm breaking all the rules. I'm self taught, so ignorant about what you should or should not do.
Not that I follow rules mind you. "Don't tell me what to do!"
