-(optional) lines, fix perspective, add detail or other flavor
-paint! value is very important here, make sure you have a good range of values. they're the most crucial part and help your painting read. color variation can help it feel more alive. small details come last and can add nice bits of textural difference. work big to small!!! big massive brush strokes at first, and then narrow and refine as you go along.
-remember also to keep in mind the story of the piece! it can help you Set The Stage
