As most of us know, London is often discovered in the rain. For me it is best discovered this way. Reflections and umbrellas against greyer tones give rise to an interesting play of contrasting elements, very much igniting the senses. When I took the photograph on which this is based, I knew I wanted to infuse a sense of happy hope against the rainy conditions. Be sure to zoom in when you view the photo of this painting and you'll continue to discover again and again. Enjoy.
