I taped some tracing paper over my drawing and did a quick black & white study in oil to better judge the composition. I wasn’t happy with the shadow falling on the back wall. It divided the painting in half. This can be distracting in a composition, so I moved it over to the right to see if I liked it better.

Orange Box & Silver Bowl b&w #2

I think that the second attempt works better. The shadow line is no longer dead center, and the additional dark area adds drama.

Now I’ll go back and finish my drawing!
