944 Tea Room Drama, oil on canvas, 36x48

Here's one of the five paintings I'm putting in the Victoria Sketch Club Show. I started painting it when I was artist in Residence at the Empress Hotel. I painted the tea room a few times and they turned out fine. However, I really wished I could stage the scene with models. However, that would have cost more than was in my budget, and it would have been quite a challenge to find the right models and dress them up for afternoon tea. So instead I found models in works done my the French Impressionists and staged them in my work. I quite like the drama.
 I still have time to make changes on it. So please I am open to comments.
