Dragon/fish patterned cloth

Been painting these nice Rhododendron on this fantastic patterned table cloth. Though in both paintings I did find myself fiddling rather with the tablecloth design, trying to find the right level of complexity and correct amount of contrast within the design, without being overpowering.

  1. As always, so well done. I just plain avoid patterned tablecloths, and use only solids, or faded colors that I don't have to paint.
