River in the Rain
I'm not as familiar with Big River as I'd like to be, but I love this song. Jim and Huck, from Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, sing country song in the rain as they travel down the Mississippi.
I wish I'd dealt with the rainfall more intelligently. They seem to be in front of a waterfall, more than in the midst of a deluge. Perhaps more mist? More edges lost? Reference might have helped me here. I was so surprised by the song choice, however. I have a long-ish list of shows I've yet to paint, but I was still hoping for something unusual and full of imagery. I remembered this show at the last minute.
Huck and Jim are happy. They love the rain. They love the freedom. They love the night. I love being so close to achieving my goal.
