Hi
Im still working on this painting based on a sketch I did a couple of weeks ago.
I still have a bit to do but not sure if the table is too dark, what do you think?

I could swear I critiqued this in another thread, Rob. Is this a different one?

Here ya go:

I think the table looks great, Rob. Your lighting and shadows are top notch. The only thing I can see that might need addressing is the placement of the candle and the ball as regards to the reflection. It just doesn't look quite right. Nice painting though. :D

I find the red color just perfect. It has nice highlights that attracts the eye

yes, the reflection on the ball will really make this painting, I agree. Highlights will do wonders to make the ball look positively reflective and will ultimately become the main theme. This reminds me of both M.C. Escher and Salvador Dhali mixed together. Surrealism is one of my favourites.
You may consider another layer of paint as well to cover the raw canvas completely.
(my 'art teacher(s)' had always encouraged that) :D

Hi,
Thank you, Salvador Dali and Escher are great artists. I am working on the next layer of colour and reflection at the moment. I will post the finished work when its done.
