Update on this piece: Oct 5 2010.
Decided that the composition does not work so abandoned. Have done some structure drawings to improve. Problem was that I assumed that I could simply re-do the Still Life and place it in an interior. I needed to consider the distances and the colours beforehand. I could possibly repaint colours but a redraw would be best.
(Completed 7 hours of painting at this point but see above.
I need to reflect on this before I continue. Notes on what next in painting notes.)
