The version before the finished piece could be an outstanding piece my itself.

gorgeous piece of art, I love the vibrant colours in the finished version. What's your process for colouring a greyscale image? Do you paint over it on low opacity or use overlay layers? I have a lot of trouble when I colour value paintings, it always ends up looking drained of life.

To add colours I use 2 primary things, a base tone and then the individual colours which I indeed add with Overlay mode layers.
My base tone I often add through either the curves adjustment layer or colour balance or both. Usually before and after adding colours manually
I do quite a bit of colour editing in the later steps using different adjustment layers and other layers with blending modes.
This is beautiful.  Art astounds me.
