A Walk In The Rain
This work displays an understanding of the natural effects of light and water.
The reflections from the ground serve as a visual anchor to the center of the canvas, while the bright swashes of color allow the viewer’s eye to dance around, as if trying to catch the drops of rain. Color plays a role in the overall balance of the piece by causing the viewer’s eye to travel along the accents of red, while journeying down the street along with the figures.
