The shadows were added, making sure that I used just a touch of the color of each saucer and cup in the shadow. Then I "lived with it" for a while before deciding if it was finished.
There are still some small bits of miskit on the painting at this point - something which I had forgotten about. Having been on for so long, some of the miskit was difficult to pull off - to be honest, some may still be on there! In a few spots I used an Xacto knife to cut off the miskit.
