The strong light gives colour and transparency to the umbrellas. The figures in the shade merge together as they shelter from the vivid light in the South of France. The interest of the painting lies in the use of complimentary blue and orange as the main colour theme, the tonal contrasts and the fact that the eye is led through the picture, past the figures to the fragments of sunlit buildings and structures beyond.
