Raining again

This painting has been sold by the People's Gallery, Stalybridge

Oil on plywood panel 8" x 8"

Everybody likes car headlights in a painting and it's difficult to resist them when they reflect on a rainy road.

Hi S.
Nice job on the fog and rainy days. I hope you have more sun than gloom, in real life.

Hiya Bruce, no, I do manage the occasional 'split my sides laughing' session now and again.

I like this very much. You've really mastered the misty look we have around here so often with your delicate brushstrokes and muted colours.

I agree about the headlights ... they're like little exclamation points of bright colour.

How do you always mange to make dull weather look so appealing??

Theresa, I like the stillness that fog and snow bring. Rain is a bit different but it's atmospheric. When I'm painting buildings though I love the sun to shine on a wall and cast deep shadows (as you know, about 1 week in the year in Stalybridge).

Ha,ha! You're not wrong. But then we have a smorgasbord of weather to paint ;)
