    Rainy Day Paint Challenge

    I love a rainy day! And I had a great desire for some time to create a rainy day painting. So I looked at a lot of photos over several days to get an idea for this one. The idea for the lady came from two different images. One of the ladies had on a dress and the other one was wearing pants with a coat and scarf. One was wearing heels and the other was wearing another type of shoe. I painted my lady with a skirt and boots. Also I gave her a tied back hairstyle with a neck scarf and a couple of wisps of hair blowing in the wind. The final result is a combination of photo editing, painting, and special effects. Below my painting is the original public domain photo I edited to get the background. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Rainy Day Stencils

    I just created a few "rainy day stencils." Most of them are silhouettes. There is just something about those rainy day silhouettes. Perhaps because in a lot of rainy day photos that's all you can see. Anyhoo, these are just a few. More to come. I thought they might add a bit more fun to this thread for anyone who wants to use them for this or their own projects. Enjoy! Cathy

    Okay, here's my latest. I added a little something to my "Simply Orange 2" painting for Mair's thread, "Food with Attitude." Enjoy!

    I love a good rainy day myself, Cathy! I particularly like it when it's warm outside because it tends to "cool" things off especially here in MO!

    When you first posted this thread, it must have been ESP working on me with you because at the time I was "experimenting" with abstract painting (not one to do abstracts) and I named it "Rain" not knowing about this thread. It took me awhile to work on it since I kept changing things with it. So, I am going to post this for you and hope you like it even though I have mixed feelings on it (Sabena I'm not!!!)!

    Wow!

    Wow, Een! That is just absolutely one-hundred percent beautiful! I love it. This painting has such a pleasant mood about it. And might I add, absolutely cheerful! The colors are gorgeous. No. You're not Sabena. And I am definitely one of her fans. But I am also one of yours. You each have your own style. And I love them both. Me, I'm not Sabena either, or any of the other amazing artists here on AR along with yourself. I'm just me. And I just do my own thing. Keep doing your wonderful paintings in your own unique and fantastic style! I think Sabena would tell you the same thing. Thank you so much Een. In your own words, "More, more, more!" Love and hugs, Cathy

    I had already posted this one some time ago in the main gallery but I thought I'd be cheeky and re-post it here as it fits

    The raindrops along the fence are a fabulous idea, Peter....

    Cathyd,
    I love rainy days. The stencils make me think of a rainy week that we had and my son and I jumped in the puddles in our bare feet laughing and giggling.
