This painting was first completed on Sunday afternoon however today I reworked it some as I felt the painting was too dark with its original blue background and green tablecloth. By experimenting with a layer of Zinc Buff for the tablecloth color and then applying another zinc white based color, Brilliant Yellow-Reddish over the blue background. The result is this finished painting, which is brighter and in my opinion a more cheerful composition.
