I was comparing my painting to my initial photo of the set-up and I noticed that the handle was drawn incorrectly. The top portion was too narrow and some of the angles were wrong. It amazes me that something could be so off at this late stage without my noticing it! I suppose that I get so focused on the details that I lost sight of the ‘big picture!’ I might have left it the way it was, but I really preferred its true form. One of the great things about oil painting is that it is rarely too late to fix something. Below you can see my corrections.
You can see that the top of the handle is now thicker on both of the sides and the top. I shaved down some of the curve on the left side of the left handle. I took this opportunity to re-see some details and correct values, shapes and colors. I also added some brighter highlights all along the handle.
