I like this Mike

What a great variety of green tones . Love it

Great work Mike - love the limited palette.

thank you for the kind comments. I do work with a limited palette - 3 browns , 4 yellows , 3 blues are my dominant range , strangers as needed. Colour matching , as a leather technician , was part of my work for 63 years ( I worked well past retiring age). Minimal colour range use was required. Here I used 1 blue , 1 brown , and all the yellows. Better colour harmony is achieved this way.
