I have this 22x24 painting I've been working on. I like the idea of the set-up but I'm not liking the finished look in the first picture. I pulled the black cloth down from the back across the table. I wish I had done that differently but at this point I'm not going to change it. So I thought of adding my Bluebird to break up that space from the background to the table top. I've drawn in the bird holding a piece of holy. I'm going to call this "Tidying Up" so the bird helping gives me that little fun part too. The background is dry. Do I need to brush on Slow Dry Medium in that spot before trying to paint the bird or can I just start painting? What do you think? Should I add the bird or just leave it out? Any suggestions would be helpful.
