I used to hate it when it rained. I thought it ruined everything. Later on in my life I started noticing that wet roads were like mirrors and there were beautiful colors in the scene. I wanted to do a painting of people on a rainy day in the summer. You’ll notice their reflections are upside-down below them and are slightly distorted. This give the illusion of being wet. Another important thing to me is I don’t try to do a detailed portrayal of the people. We really don’t see that in real life. I work on shapes and values. Look at the lady with the umbrella on the right. Her face is just two colors, but your mind makes you think it’s okay.
