Just A Little Addition

I have been staring at this canvas for a couple days now, trying to decide just what to add. After coming up with all kinds of ideas, I settled on a book. I will have her reading! So that is what I did. I added a book to my sketch.

  If I wasn't so busy, I would like to pick up a book and read too. But, I will be happy just painting her reading. Here is the before and after pics. I really think it added a lot to the composition.

 Now to add some color! I will post more later.
