IF: Cabbage Greens: A Puzzle

Cabbage Greens © Peg Nocciolino 2012

I did this study to explore different shades of green. There's only a million of them. Not quite finished with this one but its a start. Its like a puzzle. Everything fits together.

Started with a pencil sketch and then tried Holbein Acryla Designer gouache. Its an acrylic based gouache and so cannot be reworked later even on your palette like regular water-based Winsor Newton gouache  Not used to this so not sure I will like for modeling in realistic work but for flat graphic work it may be fine. I just had to work very fast to model as it dries very fast. Seems fine for glazing also.

Great greens, and details! And I never thought of a cabbage as a puzzle before but you are right, it does fit together just perfectly.
