You picked a challenging project for your first woodwork paint-job, looks like at least 4 step finish.
But if you paint (spray) cars you're miles ahead of other beginners.
I'd sand, spray/prime with high-build primer lacquer, sand smooth, then spray everything the solid green.
I use lacquer for all interior work, quick drying time, easy to sand.
Then use a combination of brushing and rag-wiping the other "coppery/brown"? color in spots as shown.
I'd use latex for this, you can take a wet rag and thin/spread it around until you get the desired effect without removing the green lacquer.
Finish up with clear flat or satin lacquer over everything once dry, sanding between coats.
Good luck, nice looking in the picture!
