Landscape demo in watercolor

I have started painting this landscape, the photo of which I had taken on the way upto Mt. Pilatus (I think!, my photo folders are all really messed up). The fall of the branches and stems looks so pretty, that I finally settled for this close up of the tree itself as the main focus instead of the entire view. Feeling euphoric to be painting in watercolour again!

I have put in a few leaves in liquid frisket to leave as highlights, then an initial wash testing the colors and getting my feet wet. I have used green gold and phthalo blue to get a green which I subdued with a red orange (Daniel smith Pyrrol scarlet):
