Dowagers on Display -Fall Maples

Well I'm on the road to finishing another painting -barring the normal what the...
These mature maples trees are in a lot near our home. Only when mature do the maples present you with the luxurious yellow-red-orange foliage that dominates the scene. The colours fill the canvas.

Once the lines were burnt into the wood panel, I added washes as a background to the painting. At that point the image looked good. The burnt lines have been done heavily so they stand out with all the paint.
The essence of the image is these mature maples showing off their coiffures of oranges and yellows. With arms uplifted they are off to a fancy Ball.

Needless to say, I need to rework the yellows as they appear too green for my liking.
