I just wanted a tonal painting of the model, finding the light on his hands very interesting. Then I got distracted and started to add colour in line with the scarf he was holding to support his hands. Once I did that I applied the colour to his gold chain. I managed to halt the slide down the slippery slope, stop and get some fixative on it before any more damage could be done.
