Whether it's finished or not , it's done. After about 50 hours on my first oil painting, we move on to painting number two in class next week.
You'll notice the background went from white to red. I intended it to be red all along so I replaced the white towel I was using for a backdrop with a red t-shirt. I think the warm background color harmonizes the painting.
The oranges are a tad soft now, but are perfect for Orange Juice tomorrow. After staring at the bottle of wine for eight weeks, I may have to taste some of that too -- but that will wait until after breakfast.
