Working with Grays Reference Photo 4

My first workshop from Richard Robinson  #24... Still trying to get a decent and not muddy painting... I realize I have much to learn using wet on wet.. Will be doing some studies uses warm and cool grays on 400 grm cartridge paper, this time I coated it with 2 coats of acrylic paint... think I put too much texture.... size A4  28 x 21.....
First attempt  with tonal colors...

 Next painted and then scrubbed away with wet cleaners

New strategy.... going to do some more drawing and premix the colors

Final stage... not happy with it.. still too fragmented...too small a format for so much information... still getting bogged down with details not important...
