Superb depiction of weather Diana.

Brilliant Diana! The cars are so good as well as your wonderful rain!

I reached for my specs when I saw this Diana....and realised I was already wearing them! You’ve mastered this distorted view through a wet windscreen, it’s absolutely brilliant! You’re a genius.

Lovely effects, beautifully painted.

A fantastic painting, Diana!

This is very clever stuff. Love the distortional view, as if you are looking through a window. You can feel the water emerging from the painting. Incredibly effective Diana.

Amazing, you have captured the look and feel perfectly

Absolutely stunning. A real beauty.

Great painting, can just feel the rain. And I love the title.

The rain effect in your painting is incredible Diana. It’s so lifelike. Well done.

Unbelievable. Brilliant!!

Terrific painting - very effective, Diana

Thank you Angela. I actually took some time to plan the sequence of the washes before starting this one. Maybe something I need to do more often Thank you so much Judith. The masking probably took the longest.
