Coffee #2 cont.

This is where I begin to fill in the background, once it will not interfere with the objects in the painting. It allows me to weigh the contrasts, and decide on how much I want to lose edges in the shadow areas. The coffee mill has been developed with soft pastels in the ochre hues, mainly from Rembrandt, with a nice red/brown from Caran d'Ache - (actually Dark Carmine 089.)
The background is a mixture of soft dark green and dark blue from Sennelier.
