(click image to see enlargement)
I think from the beginning this composition wasn't that strong. There seems to be too much space to the far left and the objects at the bottom of the painting are too small and similar in size. I tried to make the left side of the background more interesting by adding the abstract red and purple images. The grapes don't look like I'd want them to look, but I do like the glass and the bottle.

It took me two attempts to get the drawing done correctly. I actually started painting the first drawing before I realized that the proportions were wrong. So I turned the paper over and started again. The total drawing and painting time for this one was about 7 hours.
