Rain in the park

Sometimes working in a very limited palette really makes a painting. On the ‘less is more’ rule, it allows the viewer to use their imagination more.  This one may say things to me that it doesn’t say to you. I was tempted to go into detail, but I’ll resist the urge and leave you to see in it whatever you will.

I will just say that one of my favourite bits of this painting is the gorgeous blue granulation in the bottom right third of the picture. I just love it when the paint comes to life like that.

    1. Thanks Sherry. I love paintings that have strong atmosphere. They seem to tell a story.

  1. Vandy – I imagined a figure walking into the light -away from what looks like a rainy place. You are right less is so much more and I like the mood. Thanks so much for sharing.
