More Reflections in the Louvre

More work on the Louvre painting today - a struggle, as the paint wasn't entirely dry so all I could do was vaguely put in some colour and strengthen the tones. Now I will wait for the paint to dry and with a bit of luck there is enough there that I can finish this in one more session.

What I am aiming for is there to be subtle variations of colour within the larger blocks of tone - this should give a balance to the high contrast, brightly coloured area down in the left hand corner.

Against this also is me - almost insignificant amongst the beautiful ancient artifacts in the cases, the lovely Paris building seen in reflection and, of course, the grandeur of the Louvre building itself.
