Beginning the painting I put in some middle and dark values on the left side and then faded them out as they went towards the lit side of the glove. Right away I saw what I was going to do, which was to "blow out" the lightest side. That's photographer terminology for an effect where the lightest areas are deliberately over exposed, and fairly light areas simply go to white.
