This is one of several paintings that Astrup considered to be a sketch. When mentioning another rainy day motif, Spring Rain and Cherries (K43), Astrup suggested that he could paint the motif in the wet-in-wet technique in order to capture the blooming trees in rain. One can see this technique in this version as well. The various nuances of green and brown are painted rapidly – before the different layers of paint had dried, thereby creating an effect where the colours appear to blend together
