stage 3 of gouache interior 7 / by Philip Tarlow

3:30 PM: thunder is  rumbling from storms on the peaks to the east of my studio, and the skies have darkened, so i'm stopping here for the day.

the wood floor seems rather dark in comparison with the rest of the composition, but that will balance out tomorrow, once some other darks are added on the left beneath & to the right of the lamp. completion of the rug on the very lower portion, beneath the couch with the throw, will also balance out the tones.





1:44 PM: making good progress towards completion of gouache interior 7. later this afternoon, i'll stretch a 32x32" canvas in preparation of doing this one on a larger scale. indeed, it's a composition that could easily work on a 60x60" scale.
