Acrylic 2 feet by 2 feet

I saw an article that included a picture of this painting by Norbert Gouneutte (1854-1894) and it rung a bell --I did this painting years ago in oil and gave it to my sister. I have an odd shaped piece of masonite on which I will practice this painting again and afterwards may do it on a 2 x 3 foot size which would be more appropriate. I'm going to stay loose and just have fun. I spent 30 minutes noting some perspectives and sketching in some basics with blue, greys, whites and burnt sienna. The perspective is going to be odd as the reference painting is more rectagular than square.
