Exhibited in California Art Club Gold Medal Exhibition April 9-30, 2017. I was intrigued by the multi directional White light emanating from clouds during a rain squall while on the Pacific Ocean. This family was out digging for clams and wore bright Red, Pink, and Blue rain gear. The Yellow glove added another spot of color. Falling streaks of rain were used to break up random edges. The rain fall effect I created by scraping the sharp edge of a palette knife vertically. Working wet into wet reflections in the sand were achieved.
