|#12 'The Eyebrook in the Rain' oil on canvas board 12x16cm|
|Getting the composition down and the darkest values|
|The painting covered in rain drops|
I had to simplify the composition and use a much looser style and the wet canvas would not let me get small details down. Although I probably wont keep this one I really enjoyed overcoming the difficulties the rain presented and there are many aspects of the painting I like which are a direct result of the elements.
