27.5 cm x 37 cm, conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground Canson paper.
Date produced: July 2001, while living at North Brighton (1992-2004).
Drawn on-site, looking out from my studio.
I am very pleased with the feeling of rain, overcast light, and reflection that come back from this piece.
At the time, I had one day a week in which I set aside for doing my artwork. I had been looking forward all week to getting out and continuing work on a different drawing that I had started the week before, but the weather dictated a major change in plans.
I know that in putting together some of the elements of this image, I used considerable influence from the many computer paintings I had done in recent years, especially in exaggerating the rings created by the drops of rain.
