Best Brella Eliminates Dapples on Painting
White umbrella eliminates distracting dappled light.When painting in a forest with dappled light I find the dappled light on my painting very distracting and difficult to deal with. I put up
my silver umbrella and the shade was so dark, given that I was already in 90% tree shade, that it was hard to see what I was doing. The white umbrella was the perfect solution. The same is true for cloudy, foggy days, where there is still a lot of reflected light.
The white umbrella provides more light on your palette and painting, which some like. It’s really a matter of personal preference. Pastel painters may find picking the right pastel color easier with a white umbrella. If you find that when painting with a white umbrella, your paintings turn out too “dark” when viewed indoors, then you should switch to black.
Ultimately, this is a personal choice. It’s nice to have both colors and use them under certain conditions. You could always buy Kit C which, for an extra $30, includes one of each color. For instance, eyes, even though it’s a cloudy day.
