MY COMMENTS:
I took a long break from painting, about 5 years. And recently i decided to get back into it. So i figured doing a master copy, would help me get back to painting. Here is the underpainging i'm doing right now. i would like to make sure the underpainting is good, before i continue on.

This painting is done on a ampersand art gessobord.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
the questionable areas for me are the smaller detail items, the walnut, ribbon and the key, melting wax. There are a couple of areas that probably could use a highlight or shade, but i can't do it right now, because the paint is still wet in places.


Any feedback would be apreciated, because i think there are things i'm missing from staring at it for so long.
