Making progress. I added the candlestick holder to the composition.It holds the burnt match nicely and I think it ties the bottom together... I still painted a match on the table for fun.
Worked on the glass and started sharpening some edges, and softening others. Working on Rembrandt a little too.
Now the big debate going on in the studio is whether or not to put titles on the books.
my mind is looking for the titles to move the eye through the piece
I wasn't looking for titles until you said there is a debate about including titles. Now I really look for them. LOL Nice work
Until now, I've been thinking the upright book was a cigar... maybe some writing on the spine would help. Beautiful painting!
Also, I'm slightly bothered by the way the thing Rembrandt is holding (a brush? a mahl stick?) is "kissing" the spine of the book. It's at exactly the same angle. I don't think that book/cigar is working for me. :-)
Nice oil painting. Good info. Keep blogging. Thank You for sharing. Have a look at paintings for sale as they also showcase some great paintings.
