Umbrellas on King Street

12 x 12 oil on canvas
I take hundreds of photos on rainy and snowy days. Sometimes a really fun image shows up, and that was the case with this photo. Umbrellas are mostly black and boring so this scene provided a nice change. I often change things in my paintings and rarely paint the photo as is, but in this instance very little change was needed.

Umbrellas on King Street - An elegant play of the compositional element of light vs. dark. With a twist of cherry on top ... love the multi reds as accent color. Winslow Homer employed this technique to great affect and influence. Kudos.

The painting looks so natural that I feel the moisture on the skin :)
