Forgot my umbrella

Acrylic on MDF pannel, 80cm x 53cm
I'm very close to the reference photo With the exception of the running man I added.
A lot of painters are specialized in these atmospheres of rainy cities (Cristóbal Pérez García, Darek Zabrocki, Jacob Dhein, Jeremy Mann, Mike Barr...)
Strangely, the part which gave me most difficulty is the lower left foreground. I always tend to overdo my paintings (too much details)

Another terrific painting Philippe.  I'm such a fan!

Philippe: This is wonderful - so much to look at, beautiful colors, perspective, light reflections - it all comes alive.  Great job!

This is very well done Philippe, great atmosphere. I like your bold colour scheme.

Wow! This one is amazing Philippe! The darks in the lower left foreground make for a great eye stopper and lead you back into the painting. I love your placement of complementary colors next to each other, well planed! Glad you added the running man and fun title. Got to go now that I'm soak and wet!

Phillipe I always have instant recognition of your paintings.  I love this city scene.  So many good details!  Great colors and love the use of the blue in the foreground!

Philippe, I think you may add your name to the list. This is lovely, and so intriguing... You draw me in with those reflections!

Beautiful painting, Philippe.  I really like the way the streets looks so wet and the streetlights are glowing and I love the addition of the running man.  Beautiful light in this, as well - and I really like your choice of palette.  So well done!
