I started off this session with a dark glaze over the entire background that was dry.

I wanted to darken some of the values of the stuff in the background, even though it is different from the photograph I think this is better. Next I continued to do an accurate block-in of all of the items packed into this painting, and I must say after reaching this point I’m feeling more motivation for this painting. If I work hard on it I think I can achieve a really nice illusion of space and light.
