After the Rain
Using the photo that I did value studies on yesterday, I decided to try again with a very limited palate. I used only 4 colors and a very wet paper. You know how bright it can suddenly become after a rain storm. I wanted to use this light to create an eye path to the house and use some silhouetted figures on bicycles for cast reflections on the wet road and added interest. I never know what is going to take shape when working wet into wet. I did put some pencil marks for the horizon and house. With wet into wet there is little control and lots of drips since I paint on a vertical plain.
