Studio Rain

Yesterday it rained. No going outside to paint, so I drew and painted my studio.

It's a rather unusual composition. The figure (Rich Rifaat) looking out of the bottom left corner has got to raise the shackles of anyone teaching composition. The wicker bust to the right draws the eye as well.

So I added a little color.

And some rain outside the windows. Now my attention seems drawn more neatly to Rifaat working on the computer. I would use this to highlight text to the left of the sketch

 or flip the sketch like this:

Does this get your attention? Or does it just seem odd?
