Revisions to my Flavours of Provence - What do you think?

HI Everyone, Well I was looking at my sketch & the colours more closely this afternoon and I think the red table cloth is too strong and blends too much with the other colours of the elements on the table. I had this same issue when I did my Tuscany Delights.

I have decided to go with a provence blue colour for the table cloth bckground. Here is a pic I did in photoshop so you can see the difference. Appreciate any comments you may have. Have a great night!

New Painting Sketch: "Flavours of Provence"

Hi Everyone, hope you all have been keeping busy and are doing well. I have been busy working on my new painting idea and sketch for my next painting.  This one is going to be all about beautiful, colourful Provence and its colourful pottery & linens and of course all its culinary treats: such as: Calisson bisquits, Pistou, Olives, Confit, Tapenade, Aioli, Saussion, Ceese, Pastis, Rose wine, Lavender and Les herbes de provence.   Attached is a picture of my rough sketch for my next painting that will be done on a big 60 x 80 canvas.
