Abstract artist, Viktor Mitic created a series of large oil paintings en plein air called the rain paintings. What distinguishes these emotional landscapes, including Marking No. 9 is a muted palette and coloured shapes that suggest showers, thunderstorms, hail, and even puddled water.
“…there is a strong suggestion of synaesthesia with sound and colour in these paintings, as if a visual music present in their composition lifts them to a multisensory expression.” Canadian art critic, Gary Michael Dault
