Cup with Bottle and Plate

14"x11" oil on canvas. A bit larger painting than my usual daily with a lot of paint on it. The orangy red cloth in front of the cup had lost its intensity due to too much white. Instead of scraping it off and applying a new layer of more intense color, I just mixed up a batch of the new color with my knife and laid it on thick over the other paint. By drawing the knife along the paint, some of the under color peeks through. That area might take two years to dry... cool.
