1:54 PM: after looking at it in the house over the past 24 hours, i felt that it needed a few more critical tweaks before i could sign it & declare it a resolved painting. the main one oyu may notice is the horizonal triangular shadow on the lower right. it allows the eye to comprehend the space more easily. previously, as you will see if you compare yesterday's version with today's, there was some spatial; confusion and the entire image seemed like it could just slip off the bottom of the page. i also darkened a few areas, such as the hair of the main central standing figure of the barber. the white space above the draped material at the top has a few defining shadows that give it volume, and there are a few more.
