"The beauty is to create from simplicity a complex object that still looks simple but powerful."

Using DS Manganese Blue Hue, Ultramarine Blue and Amethyst Genuine, I've deepened the background colors. I've chosen not to separate the upper portion of the painting from the table edge after all.
Amethyst Genuine ( a DS Primatek Color) is a beautiful rich, deep purple that contains mica.
It's a semi-transparent paint, slightly granular. It has a full value range, great for creating depth and atmosphere. I especially love the way the mica sparkles in the light....an unexpected, but pleasant surprise.
I am hoping the sun comes out for a while today, so that I can get a better photograph of this piece and of course....I hope to work on it some more today!
