Day #12 Rainy Day, 5x7, oil

Black and white reference photo.
My goal - to add color without losing the mood of this gray and rainy day.

Rainy Day, 5x7, oil

I needed a simpler painting today because I had a date with the vacuum cleaner and duster this afternoon. I liked the moody feeling of this lone figure. Subtle colors were added to the sky, a little texture and warmth were added to the foreground. I saved my strongest color for the figure and umbrella. I like this simple picture. I can almost feel the dampness of the rain.

This painting is sold.
