Session #368, Work #357

I didn’t spend much time on working up the gray overlay tonight, but I still felt like I got a lot done. I mixed up 7 steps of value from black to white and used those over the whole painting. I took care to not use pure white anywhere on the painting, or pure black. I want to save those extreme values for later use if necessary, so I practiced conservation of the limitation of paint.
