    After taking the last look at the painting I considered myself done. I have to say that working on this painting was a great experience and fun, not only because it let me concentrate on aspects other than intense detailing, but also working with contrasting colors. In comparison to my usual monochromatic color themes, it proved to be a very educating experience. At the very end, I’d also like to take a second to give the credits for the title of this piece to the song “Summer Wind” by Frank Sinatra – it never failed to inspire me :)

    A colourful and strange new art installation called ‘Umbrella Sky’ caught my eye today while websurfing. The art is made up of 45 colored umbrellas suspended within the historic walls of Clifford’s Tower in York, England. It is the first time this medieval tower has had any kind of covering since 1684 when an enormous explosion blew the roof off (the tower was used as a store for gunpowder and munitions). And for those who think this is inappropriate, no it’s not a permanent exhibit – it’s only up for a month.

    Palettes and brushes
    When starting to work on this image I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve – an intimate and poetic mood, underlined by bold color choices and some surrealistic elements. I picked some general colors I would be using throughout the painting process and picked some
     
     

    skin tones for the character, by choosing a few midtones and then mixing them with the first palette. The brushes I used are quite standard for me: a hard round with ragged edges; a spackled brush; a rotating brush for skin tone blending and an airbrush.

    Since the project began, these pop-up shade structures have become an annual summertime installation and they have developed a cult following around the world. Creators of the Umbrella Sky Project, , have also launched offshoots of this work in other cities such as Lisbon, where they have added to the streetscape by stringing multicolored balloons over urban alleyways. As with all of their projects, the polka-dot shadows that shine down onto the street below add more color to people’s lives in everyday settings.
