I've studied value and tone from photo reference. Paint from blank canvas till finished about 1.10 hour according to the recorded video.
(no tracing and colour picking from the photo) I definitely need to practice more!
I also made extremely shorten wip version from it. You can download here
The size of full length and high quality video is quite big (3.9GB)
I'll try to find the way to reduce the size if anyone is interested in downloading it.
