This is is one of my latest experiments of working on rain and reflections on a smnall scale. It's kind of tricky but I try to follow Ken Howard's rule of dark objects are lighter in reflections and lighter objects appear darker in reflection.
In this sort of painting the drawing is everything, if one sacrifices the drawing, everything can go awfully wrong.

"The job of the impressionist painter is to say just enough without forcing the story on the viewer... detail kills imagination." (Colley Whisson)
