This is part of a new series I'm trying using the umbrellas as a theme. I haven't posted here in a very long time but want to get back into the community. Life got in the way of art for a while.

Like that background. Be interested to know how you did it. How big is this work? Interesting concept and particularly like the colour in the green umbrella.

Life does that doesn't it.

Nice jumping in point. I think umbrellas have such potential.

Thank you for you interest.
The canvas was washed in cadmium red light and vermillion. I then painted "stems" and created the white flowers with a stencil brush.

It's too easy to let our stuff get in the way of our art. I'm trying to learn what's really important. Life's stuff mostly isn't I found out. Basic tenant to all this is "you never get enough of what you don't need to make you happy."

Great artworks! Very nice. I like all the lovely colors. But I like the second one better because it has a brighter/livelier effect than the others. But the third is good also. =)

I do appreciate hearing from long time members. It can be intimidating looking at the quality of the works shown on WetCanvas.
