These are the more mature leaves towards the bottom of the painting. Of the colors that I had mentioned, I ended up not using the pthalo green. Sap green is the perfect color for leaves just turned green from orange and a mix of pthalo blue and indian yellow was sufficient for the matured leaves with a little bit of the red or brown for the shadows.
