On my way home from work one afternoon, I took a backroad. The clouds were gathering for a downpour so I had just enough time to make a quick sketch, paint some preliminary marks on my wood panel and shoot a couple of reference photos. Just as I was closing my car door, the rain drops began to fall. Salinas Farm 1 and 2 were the happy result. This one is my favorite though because of the shadows with the sun peaking through. It looks like the weather can’t quite make up its mind. Arcylic on wood panel.
