Tania Winston. Umbrella. Light Value Dominance. Acrylics on Paper. 9×12

I actually prefer the light value over the dark, even though the darker colors were easier to apply to the paper than the lighter colors were. I had to use more strokes in the background of <em> Umbrella </em> in order to create the rainy scene, as opposed to the fewer strokes in the darker depiction. I also felt as the the darker colors of the puddle were muddled and blended in with the rainy background, creating an even lesser effect of contrast.
