I resolved to paint loosely and to strive for contrast. I exaggerated the shadow darkness and I like the result. The umbrellas were the obvious color focus, so I pushed those just a bit in brightness as well.
Before I finished, the owner of the Coffee Shop came over and bought my painting. This photo is all I have left to remind me of a good day in Fair Oaks Village.
