Painting begins

These are early steps in the painting. Forgive me for the distortion caused by my point and shoot digital camera. Some of the photos have a fisheye distortion, and all are lit poorly.

I decided to establish the darkest values first, a reverse of my normal workflow, but I wanted the image to really pop rather than fail as a wishy-washy watercolor. Getting the darks in first helped keep me aware of strong values.
