Quiet Pleasures, step 8

Finishing the painting, step 4

After much deliberating, I finally settled on this cloth which has just a little detail. The problem was that the other cloth was in the setup. So I had to VERY CAREFULLY fold back the original cloth and add this one on top of it. Before I moved anything, I marked with masking tape where the open book was and drew a circle with pencil on the cloth at the base of the wine glass.

The detail adds enough interest to the cloth to keep it from being boring. When I was finished with the cloth, I removed it and replaced the book and the wine glass according to my markings.
