Painting in progress

Painting inspired by 4 separate photographs of people in a lift. It's been a while since I last painted so I've yet to find a focus in the painting, my plan is to add in detail and darken the background. I'm hoping to get more of a sense of claustrophobia and the awkwardness of being in a lift with strangers.

I'm finding the lighting difficult to get right as each person was photographed separately but my aim is to tie everything together once some more detail is added.
