This one has gone through some changes. Mostly, the struggle is with the background that I want to be something but not too much something (as if that made any sense at all).
I darkened some shapes and brought in some more darks here and there to get the eyes to move around the painting.
Not sure about this one yet. I think that velvet chair needs to be pushed back in some way. Shirley would just "destroy" it by taking a rough wet brush to it and smooshing it. Or maybe the "table" needs to read more as a table and not as a stained glass window...
What do you think? Be honest, now!
