Decisions, Decisions

 It's always fun at the beginning of a painting; you get to slap on paint without being too careful, and you can see how the colors relate to each other and make adjustments accordingly. I've got to decide what exact color of grey the woodwork should be. Should it lean a bit towards a dull city green? Or just a muted, muddy color? How can I tone down the straight-out-of-the-tube turquoise? Should I make the right side wall a blank grey, or paint in the window in the existing reference photo?
