Oxford in the rain an Acrylic Painting by Frank Callaghan. Acrylic on Acrylic Board (Circa A3) (Unframed) I love Oxford. It’s a City of views. I don’t mean the inevitable fine architecture of the College buildings, fine as they are, but I refer to the glimpses you get around corners, up lanes or as in this picture, looking across a broad street busy with people and traffic. I loved the gentle effect of rain on this scene. Enough reflections to make a difference and enough movement to make it everyday, and not a posed scene.
