Quiet Pleasures, step 6

Finishing the paintings, step 2

To the sides of the pages of the open book, I added some color. These color edges are important as they introduce some color into the middle of the painting. I'm not finished with that part, they still need to be defined more carefully. Constantly, I have to keep in mind that on top of the book are the antique reading glasses. Though they aren't in a color, they will still add a lot of interest.

Then I tackled the cloth. I'm not really happy with's kind of uninteresting. I need something there that's somewhat classy, but at the same time, not fussy or screaming for attention. I'll have to think about it.
