[OpenMap Users] Creating a brighter area of map

I think this is possibly more of a Java question than a map question, but
hope that someone in this forum may know of a solution!
Part of my map application allows a user to draw an area of interest onto
the map. I used to indicate the boundary of this area by colouring it
transparently, however, I received complaints that this interfered with
using the map too much.
After trying a few prototypes, I have found the effect I want to achieve -
to brighten the selected area. (See the attached screenshot mock, which I
made up using the Brighten option in Paint Shop Pro 7.)
The problem is, I have no idea at the moment how to go about creating this
effect in OpenMap/Java...
If anyone has any suggestions I will be very grateful!
