Caught In The Downpour! by ArtBYbeverly Caught In The Downpour! by ArtBYbeverly
When I first saw the original photo, I was a little distressed by it just because the boy looked so lonely out there in the torrential rain, and soaked through to his core.  It connected me with some experiences I had had when I was young and had no umbrella!

My biggest challenge with this piece, was trying to depict the soaking wet t-shirt and realistic water on the umbrella, I think I did alright considering it was my first experience with it :)

You did great depicting the wet tee shirt. I was more convinced by yours than the photograph. The skin color coming though really makes it real.

I love this picture.

Aww thank you so much, I was so pleased at just getting the T-shirt to look wet so I'm happy that's what I achieved with him.  I felt so compelled to draw him, because of the way he looked standing in that torrential rain.  Thank you very much for your lovely comment!! :heart:

whatta coincidence! i had a moment like this (without the umbrella!) when our layout got flooded by a sudden downpour recently! i was upto my knees in water, and my car got flooded!

superb capture, beverly! :wow:

Oh no, that's sounds awful you poor thing!! Its bad enough being up to your knees in water, but having your car flooded too :faint: Oh dear!! Did it do much damage...that must have been some downpour!! :omg:


I would imagine so many could relate to this poor little boy, I know I can too...I was walking quite a distance to work one morning, and it poured down so heavily I got drenched and didn't have an umbrella...I had to dry my clothes in the dryer at work (Hair Salon) before we opened for business....I sat in the back of the store, in my slip, and nothing else :rofl: :blush:

Thanks so much Subhankar, your input really means a lot! :cuddle: 

I wish you the very best wishes for a lovely Christmas and New Year my friend :heart:
