You know what? This is such a pleasing composition and warm pallette! I really, really like this! The reading glasses and the doily add very nice touches... Thanks for sharing your steps...

Hi Barbara,

I have this same photo in my Favorites gallery too. It is a really nice composition and you have done it justice.

I really like the glow of your colors and the way the light plays on the books and table items. Very nice painting.

Lovely result Barb :),
your colours are in harmony, light and warmth is great .

I can see from your detail shots you've put a lot of work into this , excellent textures and reflections rendered with your style.

I see you're using fairly rough paper, nice surface to work on, :)

Rod.

Barb, this is really beautiful. I aspire to be able to paint like this. One question, given the strong shadow of the lamp on the wall, should there be more of shadow on the table? I didn't notice it on the full painting--just on the detail of just the lamp.

thanks for posting it here
