Game Rain and Mood

Game Rain and Mood. Yes this is the title of this painting. I really could not get a better title. So just going with this. 

Last Friday evening we had a game of football (not the American one :)) and it started to rain. I guess it must be at least ten years since a football game in rain for me. It was really a lot of fun. As we were returning back it was getting dark. Sun had already set, but the far sky had some warmth. We were tired. Vehicles were slowly starting to put their lights on while the road was wet and slippery. A kind of dark and sombre mood had set in after all that thrill from the game. I had my moment of inspiration. On Sunday I painted this from memory.

I did not like certain things in the final painting. The car on the left of the painting could have been much further in the distance. The over all dark feel probably has got exaggerated more than necessary. Etc etc (as always). But when I see the painting it reminds me of how it felt that time. Which I think is awesome.

What do you feel about it??

I love how you captured the mood of the day in this painting! I love the misty background and of course, the incredible reflections. Basically, I love your work, Prabal!!!

Prabal, you certainly captured the mood of that sudden summer shower that comes in with an ominous feeling in the atmosphere then give everything a fresh smell afterwards. Wonderful job!

I think it is awesome!! You painted this from memory?? That's just incredible. I love the tail lights of the car reflecting in the wet street.

Je suis émerveillée par votre travail... Votre mémoire est extraordinaire...
Je pense que des images fortes vous avaient beaucoup marqué comme la brillance de la pluie sur la chaussée avec ses lumières...
Belle peinture.

Gros bisous à vous.

Actually I like this exactly as it is! I think the dim light has really emphasized that moody feeling of when the evening is drawing in and the sky is heavy with clouds. It also makes the lighter part of the sky sing out. I really like the reflection of the car lights on the road too. It's fantastic! :0)
