I have mixed feelings about my art work lately; it takes me a long time to do a painting, then I don’t care for my execution of the painting. But I am attracted to my original idea of Umbrellas on Raritan Avenue. So today in my art group I started a drawing for another painting, this time with a close up detail of the umbrellas:
My photos come out darker than the original, and despite playing a bit in Photoshop, it’s still too dark. But I like this composition. I won’t give up – maybe at some point I’ll say, yeah, that’s where I was aiming.
Here I am, posting rain imagery on a day that it snowed. Ah, well, snow is another subject to tackle.

We’re enjoying heavy and very welcome rain here in Israel, and so your lovely images are very appropriate! 🙂
(They’re predicting snow in some parts of the country for tomorrow and Friday. Only time will tell if “they” are right…)
I’m glad you are getting rain and snow! If my imagery helps, that’s great.
I love the water color with the varied tones of the umbrellas. I like the roofs, and like how you lead my eye to the background with the splash of green!
Despite the rain, the individuals seem to be enjoying walking and looking.
I like your composition, and can’t wait to see a finished painting in the future.
Glad you enjoy my paintings. I’m looking forward to working on the colors in the umbrellas.
Very pretty Leora! Both are very interesting. I like how the umbrellas add color in the first one.
Thank you. I’m looking forward to adding color to the umbrellas in the second one – it’s just at drawing stage.
I love your painting! Love all those umbrellas. 😉
Nice to hear from you, Paz, especially for a comment on my paintings.
I always enjoy your art work and think it is very good, but I know I am very critical of my own work… Michelle
I re-photographed this artwork yesterday – I might put it up again. I noticed my original had more blue than gray.
