I worked on the books yesterday and gave the background a second layer to enhance the color. Looking at the books on the monitor here, I realize they are too high in value. I need to tone down the white pages with a glaze as soon as the paint is dry enough to take it. Oh and I started to add some color to Mona Lisa against my better instincts. I originally was going to make it just a grey tone like The Thinker. A friend asked if I would do it in color, which got me to thinking maybe I would. I feel the color has drawn too much attention to Mona. I plan to tone it down also. Maybe tomorrow. Today, I am finishing a small commission piece.
