Thanks to everyone for the great advice, links, brushes, etc... They have all been a big help. I thought you all might like to see my progress on this little experiment.
Also, some people were a little confused about the piece being monochromatic. I worked my painting up in monochrome so that I can focus on making the values work before I start glazing color over it.
Now that I have the colors down, it's just a matter of fine tuning and tightening up.
