Continue to load brush and work up the stem on both sides. I added brown to deepen color.

3
Use a smaller brush to add more brown into your green, paint sparingly, for shadows.
4
Rinse brush, dab on a rag. Mix yellow and white. Paint on leaves, for highlights.
5
Use a small detail brush, to paint center vein area of plant. I used yellow and white.
