I spent a lot of time deciding and that is a problem I always have but I made up for it in working quickly to get a painting done before the light went completely away. There was an oil lamp, some books and a vase on a round table that looked both challenging and inviting. I sketched it quickly and then did layers in acrylic working as quickly as I can. It was a little muggy so the water based paint didn't dry so quickly which it wants to do under normal conditions.
I have begun to use more black in my work and I think it has given me a new depth in my paintings. I over paint the picture several times, it is a way to not get too caught up with mistakes and situations that are not satisfactory in my work, but as I painted over I would add color and black and color again to build up the depth of the value and color.
I am very happy with the results, but later when I have some time and all my art stuff is all out then I will do a little touch-up when I do I will post the final finish.
