re-visiting oil interior 3 / by Philip Tarlow

DETAIL of oil interior 3 an hour ago

3:45 PM: after being away from my studio for 48 hours, i came in this morning & cast a critical eye at oil interior 3, which i had considered to be resolved. my fist hit was that the white triangular areas mimicking the spaces left in the photo collage i was working from, were too bright and were attracting too much attention, to the detriment of the composition as a while. so i began working on them, as well as a few other areas like the patterned vase of flowers on the left. i think it's improved. BELOW are side by side comparisons of the 7/11 (right) version & todays.
