Every once in a while I hit the send button by mistake and all my readers get a blank or incomplete post. Oops! What I meant to say was that after working on this painting to darken the values, I think I over did the dark orangy background and will have to rework it. Not today though. I'm in the final preparations for Open Studios which is this coming weekend. The photo with the set up is the before, where the darks aren't dark enough. The second shot looks pretty good under the light BUT in natural light the contrast between the blue umbrella and the background is lost. Another lesson. By the way, I invite critique and suggestion from all of you.
