Red Umbrella 2
This was - as much as anything else - an exercise in making lots of different shades of grey. It is more evident in real life than on the computer screen. The only black I used in this painting was for the nose of the little dog in the foreground; all the other colours I mixed, mainly from ultramarine and alizarin. In this one I like the fact that the little dog is oblivious to the rain and is much more interested in the bit of litter on the floor.
