another rainy day

Hey,this is 16x12 MDF board,2 coats of gesso plus the remains of my acryllic pallette which consisted of a variety of reds,which gave me a good b/g to paint and draw into,once i had established my figures ,and painted them in along with the reflections and windows, i went in with my Caran D'ache Neocolour Watersoluble crayon,using them dry like pastels.
