This painting is based on a Street in Stockholm close to the central station, Kungsbron. It leads up over a bridge out of the City centre. After a thunderstorm, I rushed out to take some photos, and just loved the light effect created as the cloud was starting to lift, but there was still a soft misty rain falling.
I wanted to create a soft misty golden light feel in the background and with the reflections from the street lights and rain create the atmosphere of the end of the storm.
