And now you are ready to color. Above are the colors I used. For the leaves I colored everything but the spot where the light hit them a dark version of the green, then put a bit of black over it and blended. Then I colored the shadows even darker with the black, and finally, I colored where the light hits the leaf extremely light green. For the flowers, I just shaded with the purple. The blue is for the background.
