Third Time's the Charm

Here is the third and last version of Reading by Fireflies. I've layed down an acryla gouache wash and built up some values then sealed the wash under two layers of acrylic matte medium.
After allowing that to dry for several hours, I begin with layers of oil glazes, starting with the darkest shapes and background. I'll let it dry overnight and begin tomorrow with a second layer. These photos really distort the colors for some reason.
