Rain Dance paintings begin with a thousand layers of transparent watercolor to create the feeling of wet weather, shadows and reflections. Akin to Constructions, they are put together with parts, and do not hold to a normal sense of perspective. The acrylic Rain paintings become moody in a different mysterious way.
