Rainbow Rain Series - NEXT UP: Biking through puddles

These are images I have collected to help me paint the splash as a bike goes through a puddle.
The mud photo is especially graphic; don't you think?
I do love this job.

Making a Lil' Splash: Summer Rainbow Rain

On the easel this week is the latest in the Rainbow Rain Series.  It's surprisingly difficult to get a good picture.  Photographing the painting as a whole causes the white jacket to lose it's detail but if I get close enough to keep the detail you can't see the whole thing.
Oh well.
I hope you enjoy this little peek into my studio.
