You really get the sense that the rain is coming down hard. Great painting, Rob.

Mick Carney said...

I shiver at the thought of all that spray. You accurately evoke the feeling of driving in those conditions.

Leslie Sealey said...

Nice! I like the way you painted the headlights and reflections.

Reflected headlights on a wet road - must be Rob! You're really outstanding at this kind of stuff Rob. Any snow yet? We've escaped here in Wexford, but the first chance I get to paint snow this winter I'm getting out there!

What a beautiful painting from a difficult subject. Those headlights really shine.

You must have worked quickly to finish before the lorry ran over you! :-D

I hope you and your family have a very happy Christmas.

Rob,mi intención no era despectiva, simplemente quería decir que con unas manchas de fondo muy ligeras y unos empastes en las luces del camión,el resultado estaba conseguido.
Es decir, hacer las cosas complejas de una forma bastante sencilla.
Siento que haya habido una mala interpretación, cosas de la ausencia de conocimientos del idioma.
Un saludo.
