Rainy Night

Oils on Canvas (12" x 24")

A while ago I did a small painting of The Walks which is a park near where I used to live and now I have used the scene together with my recent fascination for rainy scenes.  I am pleased with how this one progressed.

I like to transform what could easily be a bleak scene and using colour lift it to a new level.  To me it represents seeing the positive in difficult times. There is always colour and joy all around us, we just need to learn to see it.

Walking in the Rain

Oils on Canvas (12" x 24")

Being British means that I am well used to rain and I find I am fascinated by the reflections on wet roads.  I really enjoyed painting this one and I like the format of the canvas too.
