Before the rain, 20×30cm, Oil

The hot days are over and the rain clouds in Germany have cooled down the incredible heat. This morning, just before the rain took over I caught the last sun. When painting scenes like this it is very important to get down the shadow areas first.
For this painting I stood at the end of the peir and the people almost turned out to be a gamestopper. Their footsteps set the wood pier into slight swings so painting any details was impossible.
