Garden Party Geraniums WIP continued

 15x22 watercolor work in progress (WIP) continued today with painting wet on dry of the background, a midtone green mixed with neutrals.  I can see it is too light in value so will have to add another glaze to darken.  I've used these paints:  American Journey Mint Julep, Blue Bice, Prussian blue, Ultramarine, Coffee w/Cream, Coastal Fog, Brown Derby; Daniel Smith Permanent Brown.
Beginning on geranium leaves and one red bloom shown in this closeup detail.  Tomorrow I plan to finish the potted annuals as I have a cute goat just waiting to painted.
