had a good giggle at your comments Mary  ;D

Your painting isn't half as bad as you make it to be. Nothing wrong with the lady, clouds, wall, graffiti, road, etc.  :clap:
What you can do is add more rain drops in the sky - at the moment they are too uniform and equally spaced, so add more in to make them more random. Then just soften the area code reflection on the sidewalk. Not many changes and it will look awesome O0

Nolan -  :2funny:.  Glad you enjoyed my adventure in the rain!  You deserve a medal just for being able to examine it!  I'll make those changes and try to redeem myself... :thankyou: SO much as always!

great job Maryna  :clap: :clap:

Reflect the shoes on the pavement as well, somehow the lady doesn't seem grounded, so the reflection will ground her.
Then you can add some more of the water hitting the ground effect in the foreground O0

Well done, Maryna!   :congrats:

Just those few things that Nolan pointed out and you'll have the perfect painting, Maryna.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Super work Maryna   :clap:  I see what Nolan was saying about the shoes. You have the reflection of the '73' on the sidewalk, but not for the shoes. 
A few splashes from the raindrops on the road will really top it off.   O0
Looking forward to this one.   :yippee:
Cheers, Val
