Treescape 5/100: Off the Wild Cherry Trail

I believe I have moved from avoiding painting leaves to going through the motions of painting leaves. A slight improvement but I need a little more focus to paint more than yellow blobs. Another mystery is creating more of a sense of background and foreground. I learned some tricks in school but I haven't employed them too successfully. That means it's time to go look at what other artists have done.
Composition-wise I shouldn't have included the red branch in the foreground but I am so interested in what trees really do, it breaks my heart a little to think about rearranging things to make a better painting.
