Midnight Rain

This has been renamed from the working title "Here Comes The Rain" and is the second in this short series of nocturnes, the "Midnight" series.
Originally conceived as a sky piece there was a larger figure on the right hand side of the picture which I replaced with a much smaller one when I noticed that it was looking like a Romance book jacket illustration so that it now returns to being mainly about the sky. I also painted in on the last day a distant coastline on the extreme left of the picture as I felt the picture needed "grounding" in some way.
The colours are all mixed from Kings Blue Light, Emerald Green, Phthalocyanine Blue, Phthalocyanine Green, Ultramarine Violet, Lead Tin Yellow Lemon, Warm White and Permanent Orange to knock back the saturation.
Oil on linen 24" x 18". There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
