Fantastic job Walter! Looking forward to see it finished, although it's almost there and you can tell it will be perfect :)

Beautiful work. I would only hope that in time I can be as good a painter as you most definetly are. Your values seem higher, or lighter. Will you be bringing it down or leaving it brighter? I know some of it is the age of the painting but I would love to know if you do tone it down , what color glazes you would use?

When the painting is completely dry you can veil with liquid bitumen diluted with linseed oil

In the last side-by-side it wasn't immediately clear which one was the copy. So, well done! :)

This is looking really good so far. You have done an exceptional job with subtle blends, like in his clothing.
My guess is he painted the whole globe, everything within the window, then painted the window bars in front of it - it will be harder for you to paint it in now that the bars are done, though you can always touch them up later. I think the light on the back wall is more lively in the original, adds an airy lightness.
