Another in the series using scales stencils. I did a time lapse video of this painting and posted on Instagram. (You'll have to tell me if you can view that. I have no idea if the link will work.)
I think the fact that almost everything is neutral color keeps this from looking too busy.
A light wash of Burnt Umber is applied and allowed to dry. Purple scales are added with a large stencil then warm grey is used for the smaller scales stencil. Black marker for the marks along the right and left edges, then light grey is washed over much of the painting.
