New Paintings

I've been working on some paintings of rain this week. I've been wanting to do them the last few months but have been thinking about the best way to capture it through my paints. I love the rain. I can never get enough of it.

These first two are called Summer Rain I and II. They are beautiful yellows and I'm afraid I did a terrible job of accurately capturing the subtleties in these photos. They are little more neony yellow than this. I used about 8 different shades of yellow in each.

This is my Spring Rain painting. I painted all of these on heavyweight acrylic paper. I think I'm going to look for some vintage frames for them.
