Hi everyone,

It's been raining a lot here lately, and I've really been enjoying the way the streetlights/car lights are reflected on the pavement, how the buildings fade in the distance, the hazy look of the air, ect., but I don't have a clue how to create those effects. Does anyone have any suggestions/examples/tutorials/ideas/ect. that can help me out? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'd love to have something to show within a couple days!

Hi Patrick, have you seen the work of this pastel artist? http://www.mcdermottart.com/

His work came to mind immediately when you mentioned lights reflected on wet pavement.

Ha, I had to laugh as I thought of Andrew's work right away, too! :wink2:

Thanks guys! :wave:

Wow, his paintings are incredible! That's exactly the mood/effect I was looking for. I'm going to study his work and see if I can learn something :crossfingers:
