Step by Step Painting from a Photo - Day two

Day two.
It is time to start with the darks.  Establishing the dark side of objects first, I am more able to remember where the light is coming from.  By using my darkest colors now, I will be making a more understandable road map to follow.   After the darks are painted in I will  mix the mid-tones.  The rocks all seem to have different personalities so I'm working on one- at- a- time to establish form.  I am trying not to get fascinated by any one area of the painting at this point.   The canvas size is 24X30.
