Artist: Andre Kohn (Note: The paint technique itself, as opposed to simply painting the "rain", makes it appear as though there's a gusty storm. I thought this was a still from film where the lens had gotten seriously wet-over!
Alyssa Monks: NY based oil painter I really love this oil painting because how realistic it appears to be. This piece shows great emphasis in the woman's face. This artist added emphasis by adding details to her face.
