In the mood.
Rain Shine Oils on canvas board 12 x 10 inches ON HOLD
All day rain and the grass shines wet.
I wanted to paint a moody, atmospheric picture about weather and I think I have pulled it off. Quite a change from sunlit skies but it really got me in the mood.
The vertical format shows off the textured rain-laden sky.
In the foreground the two puddles lead my eye on a C curve across the field
to the horizon with another C curve leading me up through the clouds.
I like the weight of the dark grey at the top acting as a stopper.
It pushes my eye back down again to splash in the wet grass.
