I started by drawing /painting over my charcoal sketch with Ivory black.
Leave it to me to try another method in beginning the painting. This time I put the lights in first and the light colors. I want your eye to start on the cabbages in the basket then lazily move back through the scene.
Abstract blotches of colors in the background keeps the detail and muddy colors away.
