Thought you might like to see the final result of the acrylic pair I was working on for the barn conversion project . Both much darker to go with the strong plum almost black cushions in the suite - hope my memory is accurate with this.

I added to the right hand painting the feeling of light through the lampshade touching edges of the flower motif, lamp base and cushion edges with the aid of a lemon glaze. I darkened the area of the glimpse of windowpanes in the top left to make it look like night, so there was a reason for the lamp being lit. I feel it makes the whole piece of work more narrative.
As regards the one on the left, I darkened some of the background to allow the flower motifs to stand out more and adjusted shape sizes to create more cushions and a feeling of curtains and small windowpanes to help with the theme for the pair as they will be hanging side by side behind the twin beds .
At last I am satisfied with them both, particularly the light I have been able to incorporate in this last layer of paint ..... and feel they work well together.
