Bell, Book & Candle Updated
This morning I worked on the Bell, Book & Candle painting. As can be seen in the side by side comparison, I darkened a lot of areas plus added the cast shadow from the candle and holder. I added a bit warmer yellow paint to the book, added more red and shadows to the bell, added more shadows to the brass candle holder as well as the table top and background. I darkened the cloth that is on the viewer's right behind the book.
Now the question is which way do I like the painting - cropped or uncropped???
