Another painting based on a Henri le Sidaner painting. This one had a lot of details with all those items on the table which were hard to capture with a palette knife. I should have reduced the number of items and just concentrated on the light. I changed the grapes from the original, to the bowl in the front. Initially I was just going to paint the cloth without anything there, but it did need something green to balance the greens in the grass.
