Here is an update on my new inspirational painting.
The yellowy area on the cup will be getting toned down a bit. Worked on the saucer quite a bit, but I can see I still need to do some more work. I'll have to go over the placemat some more on the left side. You can see where it is still so rough looking. I'm having a very difficult time trying to even coming close to filling the tooth, and I usually don't have a problem with that on sanded paper, so that tells you just how coarse this paper really is. You can see the coarseness in the close-up pic I provided. I also provided greyscales of both pics.
I still need to work just a bit more on the back part of the napkin too. Not too much, but some tweaking needs to be done there.
I have done some more on the book since the photo and I will be starting on the grapes this weekend. I didn't get too much done this week. It turns out I worked a full week afterall. Next week I'll probably have my hours cut. If so, I'll have more time to put into it.
Anyway, it's coming along. I hope to be near completion within two weeks.
