Painting Finished: “After Dinner”

April 6, 2010

I’ve made a few final tweaks to the painting and will call it done, at least for now, as I set it aside for study. (View the previous post a few days ago by clicking here.)

Final version

I adjusted the value of the outer livingroom area, mostly by just applying a coat of shellac to that doorway region, which I knew from experience will darken the colors down a notch. I then updated the figure some and brightened the lampshade.


I originally wanted to use a looser, rougher style of paint application than I usually do with this one, which I was worried how it would turn out with all these straight lines and edges, but I think it came out okay.
