Rainy Day in Stockholm

Rainy Day in Stockholm, Oil on Panel, 16x12

It's been ten years since we spent a rainy week in Stockholm. We came home with a bunch of gray photos, but as I we walked down this street in Gamla Stan I told my wife that the rain on these narrow streets could make for a good painting. I finally got around to it.

I got a little thicker with the paint than usual on this one - something I've been trying to work on lately. I don't know why it's so hard to get used to.

(Note: some camera distortion makes the yellow building lean more than it does in the actual painting.)

  1. The street definitely looks wet - good job w/the highlights on this.
