Sunshine on a rainy day
A picture to brighten the dismal summer of 2012! A woman stands in the pounding rain in front of York Minster, holding a huge bouquet of glowing sunflowers as the rain and wind tear through the people and tree around her.
I stood in the cold, pouring rain on a May day, sketching and taking photographs of York Minster on a day like this.
I was looking at the reflections and how the rain affected people and the appearance of the buildings. I love the way people and buildings recede into the background through a 'fog' of rain, contrasting with the vivid yellow of the sunflowers in the foreground, hence my choice of charcoal and ink for all but the flowers in the picture.
