As I said previously, I coded the patches in the quilt, which is one of the smartest things I've done. I would be totally lost, if I hadn't. I started in the shadow area, and worked my way down and then back up the far side. Almost all the patches are different and in different colors, so I spent a lot of time mixing paint and cleaning brushes.
Now that I'm this far, I think I will adjust the bottom part of the quilt and wrap it around in front of the chair leg, so that the leg doesn't go off the bottom of the canvas. I don't like the angle that is created by the edge of the quilt and the chair leg. It will help to keep the viewer's eye in the painting.
