Very nice
I do something similar - BUT I like to mix some brown paint into the base medium - I can stand to fight that white base color and I HATE it when a stinking WHITE spot of color "jumps" out at me later on - when I think I am done

Great job

agreed i mix before applying white base. then dry brush lighter. then add green bits.

i learned the dry brush when i used too dark a color. lighter colors work better muxh like you have.
