Another Speedpaint for DA-Speedpaint Group :)
Topic: Terrible Rain
Time: 60 min

The rain in the picture doesn't seem that terrible though :D I like the many reflections of street lights / cars / buildings on a rainy day in the city, so I wanted to implement them in the picture, it turned out kinda abstract. I'm not sure if I got the effect I had in my mind (reflections) but it was fun painting the picture! I'm a bit "scared" of using colors, so this was a good practise to just play around with colors without worrying to much about shapes :) But somehow the colors make the picture not rainy at all...what do you think?

Really into the heaviness of the vertical lines. The reflected lights work well too, and I like the texture in the highlights of the figure and umbrella.

Compositionally, this image isn't that interesting. I wish the figure reached more to the top or that the background had more angle to it--maybe perspective pulling the street away. 

Nice work!

You're absolutley right with the perspective.. I will try to pay more attention to that in the next speedpaint. In this one I focused on the colors, so maybe with a bit more experience / training I will manage to combine both :D
