Under the orange umbrella 11"x14" oil

This lacquered, oriental, paper umbrella I have used many times.   This time we lit it from behind which casts a warm glow on her right side.    I debated wether to include the dark chair back but in the end I thought it separated the umbrella glow and the glow on her shoulder, plus it gives the painting another dark area.   I like the cool north light in contrast with the warm light.
