Quiet Pleasures, step 9

Finishing the painting, step 5

Finally I was able to add some of the interesting details and finishing touches. It was imperative to finish the open book before I laid the glasses on top of it.

Across the pages, I suggested the type, carefully lining up the lines and indicating paragraphs in perspective. I added type to the wine labels, and painted the defining shapes of the cut crystal on the side of the wine glass.

I worked more on the cloth, on the shadow color and defined the cutwork more.

I'm ready for the glasses now.
