It’s Time for Big Decisions
There are a few more things that are needed before the painting is signed. The cookbook needs a few correcting strokes as some of the angles are a little off. And some decisions need to be made for the background. There’s much empty space in the top half, and something needs to be done there, but what, I am not quite sure. I will probably go to some large brushwork, there. Here’s where a painting can be made stronger or weaker – in the last wrapping up session.
I do like the lower left corner, and how the towel seems to emerge from the background – something happening, yet not too distracting. I hope to create that same effect for the rest of the background.
