Umbrellas Lesson 1: Study the B/W version of the photo with contrast adjusted bright, then one that is dark. Look for the way that darks and lights define shapes. What can you see that is still dark in the light picture? Still light in the dark picture? What details do you like and dislike? You don't have to put everything in the painting. And you can change what you keep. I am reducing the number of umbrellas and changing some of their colors.
