After 6 months of trying to SEE things such as values, contrast, color, etc. and not to mention no sleep SEEING these thing in my head, here is the result.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

I couldn't resist that.
