Building A Painting (part 4)

Well, I'm in the homestretch.  I can't tell you how many times I painted, then erased, then painted, then erased, etc. that cloth!  I think it's done now -- yeesh.  I believe the quilted pattern solves the problem of your eye being led off the page at the top with the branches that are coming out of the jug. I think my eye keeps bouncing around -- but finally settles on the jug or maybe those branches . . . oh good grief . . . who knows?! Am I really supposed to know these things? Probably . . . but sometimes I just don't.  :) Anyway . . . a few more details to attend to and then she's done! Have a good day.


  1. Kara, I love this painting. The addition of the willow branches is superb, it helps to tie the jug to the window. I also like what you have done with the darker shadow on the left of the painting-beautiful light overall which leads your eye around the painting and not off.

  2. Fantastisches Bild. Ganz bezaubernd;-)
