A city soaked

Every time I visited Ajay's blog I would see this photograph taken by him which looked like a painting. It was irresistible not to paint this, but since I had not painted a rainy scene before it was intimidating too. However I just went ahead and painted it.
The composition of the photo was great. So made only some minor changes in the painting. The biggest change was to increase the size of the dome and make people wear colorful clothes :). I hope I was able to do justice to the photograph.

My compliments to Ajay for the photo and to you for your interpretation in watercolor. Both are wonderfully atmospheric. I think you will not be intimidated by rainy scenes again, as this is very successful.

Mugger Much. What a fundoo name. I am impressed too with that name. :)

Pk, thanks. This painting is your current city of residence. :)

Mineke, Thanks a lot. Your small sketch of rainy scene was the inspiration behind this.
