Red-tailed hawk progress 3

This is probably the last progress shot before I finish the painting. Here's a bit more detail on the hawk and the greenery. I always have trouble using green in bushes and trees without making it look flat and too monochromatic.

I've used a lot less white gouache on this than with the previous painting (the saker falcon painting), and I'm happy - I prefer the transparency of watercolor to opaque pigment.
