The last succulent?!

Is this the end? I have had an intimate and almost toilsome relationship with this series of photographs that have become the Blackhawk Hardware Series.  This is the last of the photos and with some edits after this post will be a final foursome.  Colors Used Kelp Lime Kelly Green Prussian Olive Marine Sage Cream White Black Black Grape Slate Limepeel I found myself challenged many times with the colors contained within the leaves and the spectrum of greens seems to be one of my biggest challenges.  It can be so difficult to achieve realistic greens with them appearing neon or coloring book realism.   I also caught myself looking at classic value studies to really try to figure out my problem areas.
