Walking in the Rain-24x12

I enjoy doing street scenes because of all the levels of perspective that create a believable scene. Here I made one side of the street cool and the other warm to add the perception of the backlit light source falling more directly on the warm side. It also adds interest. Originally I had all the figures and umbrellas dark with no color against the backlight. An artist friend of mine suggested adding red to the center umbrella and I thought that was a good idea, strengthening the focal point.
