Finishing Touches: A Rococo Interior

In her Zoom demo, Val will be sharing strategies for resolving a painting when it has already been blocked in and developed to a stage of near-completion. 

Questions to consider: What are the focal points? Is there enough range in value? Is there a strong pattern of lights with darks? Is there enough variety in colour mixtures? 

And the elusive: How do you know when you are finished?
