June Forest Progression DAY ONE

I started a new large painting yesterday.  It will be a forest, and since it is now June, I'm going to call it June Forest.  Not my most creative title for a painting.  

So far I have leaves on the ground and sky.  I used a lot of purple for the shadowy part of the forest floor and imagined it was laughing while I painted it.  I added red next, because the purple needed a bright color to dance with.  I'll photograph this one as I paint it to show it's progression.
