On yesterday's blog, I promised to leave plein air studies alone. Glad I didn't take my own advice this time! Actually, this was only started when my subject folded the umbrella and left! I scolded the poor soul on the way out, but think there was either a language or hearing problem. Fortunately I had snapped a reference photo.
Pushed the values (darks and lights) and left the foreground unfinished to shift focus to the center of interest... the character in the red cap. Totally thrilled with this one!
