Just Walking in the Rain No.1

8 x 8 oil on canvas
I really enjoy taking photographs. They aren't always the best quality, but I don't need a lot of detail to use them as reference for painting. I find so many interesting people in the background of these pictures, and I have often thought of compiling them into a group of paintings called "Just Walking in the Rain".
I really enjoyed this picture. The young woman appeared to be out for a fitness walk while the Basset Hound looked completely dejected. I guess we don't all like walking in the rain.
This woman and her dog are walking  in front of the Gooderham building preparing to cross Front Street.

I love dogs and this picture really appeals to me
the blue umbrella makes it wok too, the subtle
background brings out that rainy feeling.

Super painting. Most dogs I know do not love walking in the rain. So I love the expression on the dog's face.

I really love this. It's the arrangement of simple shapes and the pattern of lights and darks. I think. Well, I just like the whole thing!
