Daily Painting Practice - Painting Rembrandt's Shelf

 More progress on the Rembrandt's Shelf painting. (My official painting title manager/wife hasn't approved the name. So this is a temporary title)
I like playing with shadows. I think they add interest and to some degree a sense of place.
 Bringing up the color intensity and working on the pipe. at this point I am feeling more and more like I will need something in the bottom left side.
I raised the level of the foreground, it seems to work better. Not sure about the match...(in fact my progress checker/wife says it looks "goofy". That's an official registered critique.
The glass ink well is back. Other than relocating the match I think it is close to the "almost" final phase.(clean up and detail)

Maybe I'm goofy. I kinda like the match. Seems to balance out with the ink well, and makes sense because of the pipe. Right?
Course, I'm not an official registered critique-er...

It's my favourite Rembrandt, guy; hope you finish it soon...
