but when i saw these umbrellas on the beach i HAD to paint it! and i'm glad i ventured out.
this really reminds me of an Edward Potthast and is Sorrolla-esque. like the umbrellas. the part that is in shadow on the white one is very warm and only half a value difference. Sorrolla had a cool way of barely dropping the value but the temperature difference showed the form instead of darker values.
my favorite part of this painting is the shadows of the white umbrellas. weird to really love about 1/30th of a painting but all you artists out there know what i'm talking about!
