The painting is finally finished, thanks to an uninterrupted work day and the good sense to know when to stop. No FedEx at the door, no deadline – this is close to heaven.
The bag, cup and cigarette were left for last. I added some white to pop the yellow stripe color, the girl’s hat, and other highlight areas. I’m happy with the composition and reasonably satisfied with the color and tonal balance. My aim is still to get the blending and strokes closer to the look of oils. On to the next project.
