    The Raven is a long poem that has many elements and visuals contained within. It was never my intention for the bird to be a principle area of focus. There was another specific section that inspired this piece. Those familiar with the poem will understand

    You're right, a lot of people do work this way and that's fine. But it does tend to create the same problems as I mentioned. A lack of consistency, or loss of sight of the big picture. Marco Bucci looks at just the whole picture almost the entire time. For a painting with a lot of atmosphere it's something to consider.

    here's what I see regarding the lighting.

And thinking more about local value and material (the dark red chair probably wont reflect a lot of green light, dark slacks don't get bright highlights, white table cloth should reflect similarly to the shirt). Not gonna pretend like this is right on the mark but you get the idea.

    Joe, I exaggerated the cast light on the seated figure, as you indicated. Looks much better, more integrated. Thanks !
