I love the light coming through the umbrella Karen. I loved it small, and I love it large!

Beautiful - as always! Your umbrellas are always great. Love your colors and soft edges.

Again a very striking portrait. You are very, very good with light, Karen; I am not art-educated, so all I can say is, this is wonderful. Nice work, very nice. And I love the colour palette.

Thanks for sharing this.

Peter.

I just LOVE the reflections of the rose colored umbrella on her face. Such a beautiful glow! Great composition.

Great painting. I like the sulky mood offset by the pink. Super.

Karen,
This is beautiful. Favorite moment is the orangey bits in the umbrella that are near her face. Great skin tones and love this composition.

I like how the umbrellas look translucent. A rainy day with a rosy feeling!

I'm a little late but I must agree with what has been said previously, the rosy glow on her face looks amazing!
