Some Painting Progress

I've been working on a commission, so I haven't really gotten a chance to do much personal work. In between waiting for replies from my client, I transferred "Another Ruined Cravat" to watercolor paper and just barely got the background started.

I think that the colors will be similar to my digital "for fun" version. I tried to think of any color scheme that I would like better, and I just couldn't really think of one. At first I thought of making the bed curtains red, but that would make the bits of blood not as poignant. My original idea for this picture was that it was the woman's bedroom and he was leaving after his, um... feast? :) But with the green, it makes the room have more of a masculine sort of feel. So I guess it is his room. What is left to wonder about is if she is capable of leaving on her own, or if a servant will have to remove her. hmm...

Can´t wait to see the finished painting. Like always, I´m sure it will be wonderful!
BTW good "To bid you farewell" this week but because my internet connection broke down, I was unable to let you know sooner. Love it and I´ll frame it as soon as possible.
