Art and Beauty Tuesday
I was taken by the brightness of the blue in the umbrellas in spite of the overall darkness in the painting. The blue is repeated in the clothing of almost every figure in the painting and is a nice, almost cheery contrast to the other main color, black.
Although at first glance, it seems a gloomy picture, there is a bit of a bright (although "blue") aspect; a tiny bit of hope that, nevertheless, pervades the painting.
