Re: I am posting this for Patriciabuon (Painting)

Outstanding rendering of the rain indeed!!!! These types of paintings depicting rain are quite popular here in New Orleans and fetch a fancy price with them, yours is outstanding!!! I really like the look of the 3 lights under the awning as well, gives off a real good mood to the painting.
Very well done!!!!

Wonderful and I like the way you achieved the rain dripping off the overhang awning.

Beautiful, I really like the buildings in the distance the sketchy feel works really well, the rain running off the canopy is also great

Re: I am posting this for Patriciabuon (Painting)

Thanks very much for posting this for me Kathleen. Bizkit, I'm interested in your comments about New Orleans. I am eager to sell - had my first exhibition in Australia very recently and sold well. Gave me the motivation I needed. I live in Virginia, an area where it is very hard to sell. Have you any suggestions about how I might enter the New Orleans market? I need to buy more paint and canvas!!!!!!!

Re: I am posting this for Patriciabuon (Painting)

This painting is terrific! The depiction of rain is outstanding. Whilst the foreground perspective is good that of the background buildings seems a bit off. The fact that their detail and tonal value is muted goes some way to overcome this problem.

Re: I am posting this for Patriciabuon (Painting)

Thanks Doug. I appreciate your helpful criticism. I was worried about the same thing but was advised that the impressionistic low key quality of the background made it not a critical problem. So ... I left it alone, and felt uneasy about it. I hate perspective problems and agonize over them. I have had a couple of other pieces that improved out of sight when I finally got the geometry right, so maybe I need to go back to this one.
