Rain in Paris

Rain in Paris 5x7 oil on board

This was done for a Daily Paintworks Challenge to 
paint rain.  I usually use
very vivid colors but I also love to use
grays and muted tones so this was a great chance 
to do that.
I used a very textured canvas which I think helped
to give a fuzzy atmospheric effect.


  1. Great feeling of the rain with your soft edges and beautiful neutrals. Makes the red umbrella s pop

  2. Thanks Julie, that was the idea. Sometimes I like to use alot of neutrals with one vivid focal. I appreciate you commenting!
