to go along with this endless rainy weather we are having...i found an artist who does some beautiful rainy scenes. it seems that the artist, leonid afremov, used the rain for the reflection of color in the streets, very much like they do with movies that take place at night. the things that i love about these paintings are their brushstrokes and huge array of colors (his use of color is amazing). because of those two things, it seems that this artist was most likely influenced by impressionism, which is one of my favorite movements and is also most likely why i love these paintings so much.
here is a link to his etsy store...he has a ton more paintings posted on there - these are only a dew of my favorites.
