Okay, if you look at a previous post, I used a white Utrecht umbrella which they don’t even make anymore.  Did a painting using that and it turned out way too dark. Reason being, if you judge colors under harsh bright light then your painting will end up looking good only when it has harsh bright light shining on it.  So I had been looking at this new umbrella called “BestBrella” or something like that and finally ordered one.  It arrived a few days ago and I have to say, this is one slick umbrella!  Since it will provide a lot more shade, this should help lighten up my paintings a bit.  Here’s a pic of it hooded up to my 8 x 10 Open M pochade box…
