In this stage, lots seems to be happening, as I paint the plants in.
The plant behind is painted in a pale grey-green to make it appear further away in the distance.
The one to the side of the statue is a green-grey mix (more green than grey) .
This is because I want it to appear closer than the farthest plant, but not too close. That honour is reserved for the foreground plants and the tall leaves. So they must be more noticeable than the others.
I have also defined the features on the statue some more, with further layers of grey.
