Description
Sun and Walking Rain is an excellent example of Reed’s mastery of the use of aquatint to create form, space, and dramatic lighting. The southwest offers many splendid bluffs, canyons, and meadows, not to mention cloudscapes. Its monsoon season lasts from June through September and in Sun and Walking Rain, Reed captures a veil of dark rain as it passes, or walks, across the landscape.
