Chinese umbrella 9"x12" oil

What I painted today in the portrait group was crap! yes, crap, so I wiped it off and am posting what I painted Friday in my Go Figure session.   Now the most exciting thing was the way the light was coming through the umbrella and I painted it with lots of light coming through but that made the face and skin tones pale in comparison.   I remember when I was there the skin tones were the brightest thing on the composition so when I got home I darkened the umbrella and the effect was just what I wanted, the person stands out.   I learned a lesson that day.
