FLOWERS FRUIT COFFEE - CLOSE TO BEING FINISHED?



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!

good colour contrasts but you are right, the table looks too much like stained glass making the chair look like a hat more

You are right.
This needs something.
My eye is busy search for the center of interest.
I am not so bothered by shapes as the fact that everything seems about the same value.
Glaze something. Push some things back.

I think the coffee pot edge lines up with the black line - would have broken that line a bit more. Live with it a while and changes will come to you.
